Hazel’s Lobster Pound is back!
Lobster season is about to start and nowhere in metro Detroit is it more noticeable than Birmingham’s restaurant Hazel’s. The casual seafood spot first featured hot and cold lobster rolls and full lobster dinners on its menu in 2019 as part of a Maine-style dining experience they called Hazel’s Lobster Pound. Now, Hazel’s changes its menu seasonally throughout the year to suit the freshest coastal U.S. seafood available from the Atlantic Coast to the Pacific Northwest and the Gulf of Mexico. Chef and co-owner Emmele Herrold claims that lobster isn’t just a special occasion food. “You can go out to Lobster Pound in your lounge clothes,” said Herrold. “It does not have to feel like a fussy seafood place. You can order fresh lobster and make it an experience.” Instead of a formal, upscale dining experience, the restaurant focuses on creating a casual atmosphere with fresh-caught, high-quality seafood you can enjoy among friends. Lobster rolls were once hard-to-find in the area, and over the past few years Hazel’s has made Maine and Connecticut style lobster rolls, full lobster dinners, rich lobster bisque and much more. Hazel’s Lobster Pound event is available now through the end of September. 1 Peabody Street, Birmingham eatathazels.com
