Lobster Newburg debuted at the legendary Delmonico's restaurant in the 19th century, and it’s been a classic for special-occasion dining every since. Our updated version is made by a New England family seafood company, whose award-winning chefs combine sweet, tender chunks of fresh Maine lobster with a rich sherry cream sauce. We've also included buttery puff pastry shells, ready to bake in the oven.

  • 1 qt. Lobster Newburg; eight 4"-diam. pastry shells.
  • Shipped frozen.
  • Made in the USA.
  • A Williams Sonoma exclusive.
Use & Care

Receiving Instructions

  • The lobster Newburg ships frozen with dry ice. Please take care not to touch the dry ice with bare hands.Refrigerate or freeze upon receipt. The lobster Newburg keeps up to 4 days refrigerated or up to 3 months frozen.

Cooking Instructions

  • 8 frozen sheets of puff pastry
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tsp. water
  • 1 container lobster Newburg, thawed overnight in the refrigerator
  • Preheat an oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Generously prick the tops of the frozen puff pastry with the tines of a fork or toothpick. Brush the tops with the egg mixture. Place the pastries on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them evenly apart. Bake until the pastries have puffed up, are golden on the tops and bottoms, and are firm along the sides, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Using a sharp paring knife, cut out the inside round of each pastry; reserve both pieces.
  • Put the thawed lobster Newburg in a saucepan, set over medium heat and cook, stirring, until warmed through, about 15 minutes. Set the puff pastry rims on a plate and spoon the lobster Newburg into the pastry shells. Cover each with an inside round. Serve immediately.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lobster was stale and tough. The sauce was bland. I ordered this expecting a high quality meal. The lobster was tough, stale and fishy and the sauce had no flavor. It was inedible. We had to throw it out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New tradition We have ordered this three times now, and paired with beef tenderloin has become our Christmas dinner surf and turf tradition. It is SO simple, but tasted as though we spent hours on it. Elegant Christmas dinner while still allowing time for the most important things.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The next best thing to restaurant L.N. I LOVE Lobster Newburg but haven't had any since leaving my beloved NYC. So I couldn't resist when I saw this. It's very good, a little taste of hom. Sauce & lobster sweet and delicious. It isn't difficult to make. I'd been hoarding it in fact, and my 86 y/o Mother found it and made it - her speed is generally runs to Schwanns and canned soup casseroles. (she liked the Newburg too) The only special thing you need to fix it is parchment paper for the pastry, which is shamefully buttery. All in all, very pleased with this.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from mixed reviews The pastry is outstanding, light and flaky however, after warming up the newburgh sauce it becomes watery! Taste is lovely but texture makes pastry soggy. This is disappointing. Ruins the dish.
