You’ve probably never heard of Fourchu Lobsters or the small fishing village of the same name in Nova Scotia where they hail from. In fact, there are only 47 residents, mostly fishermen and their families, that live there.

Despite this small population, Fourchu has gained quite some fame. The lobsters hauled up from the freezing cold waters off the cost of this town have been labeled the Rolls Royce of Lobster. Lucky for New Yorkers, L’Ecole in Manhattan has it hands on some for a limited time. Perfect for a summer lobster roll, they’re only available until August before they disappear again until next summer.

Hat tip to Gothamist who gave the heads up on “the very best lobsters in the world” returning to NYC.
