Ah, a quest for the other white meat.

If you want to spend, then by all means The Palm.
Expensive but first class.
They will even split it lengthwise and grill, vs steam/boil, also crack everything so all you have to do is EAT.

If you want to do it yourself at home for ~$10/lb (HT is $15 and I never think their selection is good) then go pickup some live ones at the Grand Asia Market.
Grand Asia has the best live lobsters in town that I have been able to find. Also live dungeness crab, & tilapia.
We do this frequently, and it is a fun family activity.

EDIT: now I can't get lobster off the brain and will do this tonight, thx a lot.

Haha. From that history....
"They had it put into their contracts that they would not be forced to eat lobster more than three times a week."

Thanks for the link to that market...I LOVE seafood, but hate paying the rolls-royce prices here for good seafood!

I picked out a ~2lb live tilapia Wednesday afternoon, IIRC it was $3.99 /lb and they will clean and cut for you in approx a dozen ways.
I usually just get the #1 which is a basic clean/scale.

You just can't get fresher than from swimming to cooked on your table in an hour.
My daughters shrieked when they first saw the fishmonger kill the fish with a rubber mallet, kids these days...
