Owners/Chefs: Catering vets Michael Kash and Ron Raymer, who trained under James Beard Award recipient Jean-Marie Lacroix

The Numbers: • 1,000 lobsters sold since opening day • $800 for a private, 15-person lobster boil (including booze) • 40 live lobsters shipped in daily from the East Coast • 3 pints of Guinness (each) before the owners officially decided to open the restaurant
