If the reports are true as BHB commenter Since47 suggests then Armando’s on Montague is soon to be history:
Evidently Peter Byros, owner of Armando’s and the building that houses it, is retiring. With nobody interested in buying the building, Peter is renting the restaurant out to a ‘fancy sandwich shop.’ The last day for the restaurant is Palm Sunday. Don’t take down that lobster!
Is it time for the BHB community to stand up and say SAVE THE LOBSTER! The sign has been a Montague Street fixture for decades, since the restaurant opened in 1936. The Brooklyn Dodgers, Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller were said to be regulars of the eatery in the 1950s.
Does the Lobster deserve Landmark status? Comment below!
