Yesterday evening, Luke’s Lobster opened in Georgetown on Potomac Street. Owner Luke Holden graduated from Georgetown University in 2007 with a degree from the business school. The shop is two stories, with the traditional Maine-inspired seafood menu. The restaurant looks great, though Vox has yet to try the food out. Review to come soon.
Luke’s Lobster takes over a space previously occupied by the famed Philadelphia Pizza Company, or “Philly P,” which apparently Holden frequented during his time at Georgetown. In 2009, the ANC went after Philly P’s for its late night hours, high number of take-out customers, and the odor that bothered the neighbors. A year later, Philly P’s was ordered to close. We wish Holden good luck in his effort to reoccupy the space!
