Last night, New York City's Metropolitan Pavilion turned into a 25-sided boxing ring. Except instead of boxing gloves there were foam lobster claws, and everyone was happily tasting their way through the 25 delicious lobster rolls at Tasting Table's sixth annual Lobster Rumble NYC. After three hours of seafood, our guests and editors cast their votes, and we found out which two champions clawed their way to the top.

Without further ado . . .

TT Fan Favorite: The Clam Shack
The long line spoke for itself—our 2013 champions were back with a vengeance. The team from Kennebunkport, Maine, doesn't have to go far to source their fresh, rich crustaceans, which they served slider style inside a soft, pillowy bun.

Editor's Choice: Thames Street Oyster House
Winner of the Fan Favorite award last year, Thames Street showed up strong again to win over our editors' taste buds. They shipped up from Baltimore ready to delight tasters with their New England lobster placed inside a buttery split-top bun.

Congratulations to our victors and thank you to all our contestants! Next up, we're rolling in to L.A., so get cracking on tickets for our upcoming lobster-filled celebration on Thursday, August 13.
