That’s right, Maine-style rolls. Go for Luke’s trio to sample all three varieties: lobster, crab and shrimp. Wash it all down with a pint of Little Creatures craft beer for a satisfying meal.

Inspired by the word ‘cosmos’, which means a system of thought, the restaurant takes a conscious dining approach.
