A Third of Tested Restaurant Lobster Dishes Contain Cheaper Seafood

Nathan’s Coney Island- whiting in lobster roll

One Red Lobster location- langostino in lobster bisque

Soupman of Seinfeld fame- lobster in lobster bisque

On a related note a few years back there were restaurants selling grouper but substituting it with something else (can’t remember what). It may still happen in some places, who knows.

When I order lobster it would be hard to fake it–I always get it as a steamed whole lobster. :slight_smile:

Fishes are intentionally/ inadvertently substituted often. Sometimes its hard to tell the fishes apart. Sometimes restaurants/ supplies are just cheating.
