A new restaurant is arriving with what could be the most interesting dining combination in Ridgewood – top lobster specialties and hearty morning breakfasts. 

Scheduled to open late next week in the space that formerly housed Lisa's Turkish Kitchen, "Wa Lobster Pot" promises a variety of tasty food without pretention.

"It's comfortable, it's homey," said co-owner Isabella Han, a Ridgewood High School grad. "We're looking for a lot of word of mouth... You can come in for a lobster dinner or just have a cup of coffee." 

The restaurant opens at 6:30 a.m. on weekdays, offering omletes, pancakes, french toast, as well as coffee and espresso until noon. The breakfast prices are moderate – ranging from $3.25 for one egg with toast and home fries to $8.75 for lobster pancakes.

From noon until 10 p.m. seafood shines. On the menu is a lobster roll ($9.75 for a small), Alaska snow crab legs (market price), steamed clams ($9), steamed lobsters (between $14.75 for a single steamed lobster and $36.75 for three lobsters) and family package dinner specials. 

There are kids meals, salads and side dishes also available in the cozy-but-chic space. About 50 diners can be seated at Wa Lobster Pot.

The lobster-breakfast niche is an unorthodox combination, Han admits. But she believes the small business can pull it off. A good, affordable breakfast is still desired in town and there are few restaurants offering top-notch lobster, crab and clam combinations.

Wa Lobster Pot is located at 54 Chestnut Street. It's open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Friday; 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday; and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

Pickup orders are available and delivery might be a future option. They can be reached at 201-670-1266.
