Lobster Shack coming to Ladera County Shopper

The Old Port Lobster Shack is coming to the Ladera Country Shopper, according to the online Portola Valley Forum. The Lobster Shack will replace the Red Lotus restaurant, which has closed in the shopping center at 3130 Alpine Road.

The Lobster Shack, with a location at 851 Veterans Boulevard in Redwood City, is owned and run by Portola Valley residents Lynn and Russell Deutsch.

Mr. Deutsch had experience in the lobster import business when he came up with the idea of opening a New England-style lobster shack in the Bay Area. The Redwood City shop opened in 2006 to an enthusiastic response from transplanted New Englanders, especially those pining for an authentic lobster roll.

Besides its signature lobster roll, the Lobster Shack provides an assortment of fresh seafood, including shrimp, clams, mussels, and oysters; sandwiches; seafood salads; and clam chowder.

As to an opening date for the Ladera location, Ms. Deutsch says on the Portola Valley Forum: "Opening is highly dependent on the permit process as well as plans we are reviewing with the architects. One of the things we will focus on is creating meals to take home after a long day. There are more choices than seafood, too."
