Lobster Bliss joins food truck lineup

June 15, 2015

There’s a new kid on the food truck block.

Lobster Bliss, Colorado’s new source for ultra-fresh, sustainable lobsters and seafood from local fishermen and responsible suppliers around the globe, recently launched its food truck and wholesale business. The Lobster Bliss food truck joins the rest of the food truck bunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays at Civic Center Eats in Denver’s Civic Center Park at the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Broadway Street in downtown Denver.

“We’re tremendously excited to be bringing the Lobster Bliss experience to Denver,” said Rich Manzo, co-founder of Lobster Bliss, along with his business partner Jeff Reebie. “Denver has never had an outlet like this for whole live Maine lobsters and other fresh, sustainable seafood, and we’re really looking forward to introducing Coloradans to an authentic ocean-to-plate experience.”

Manzo and Reebie have close to 60 years of combined experience in the culinary world in New York and all over Colorado. Working in some of the top restaurants in the country, Manzo and Reebie realized the need to provide fresh, affordable and sustainable seafood to Colorado consumers and businesses. In 2014, Manzo and Reebie signed an agreement to bring innovative lobster tanks to Colorado that recreates the ideal ocean experience for seafood.

Inside Lobster Bliss’s 2,500-gallon tank, the crystal clear water remains a constant 45 degrees and is completely filtered every 15 minutes, creating a stable, controlled and clean environment for the lobsters to thrive. The unique filtration system mimics the water-cleaning action of the ocean, naturally eliminating bacterial buildup. There are only 300 such tanks in North America, and Lobster Bliss is the exclusive provider for the state of Colorado.

“You can really taste the difference this low-bacteria, sustainable environment brings out in the seafood. There’s a sweet taste and succulence you only find in lobsters fresh off the dock,” Manzo said.

The Lobster Bliss food truck will be serving authentic lobster rolls and scallop rolls served on a brioche bun, homemade lobster bisque, lobster tacos, and a fresh ahi tuna sandwich served on a brioche roll with red onion marmalade and scratch-made coleslaw. The truck will be participating in Civic Center Eats, and will be attending events around Colorado. The partners are also planning to open a Denver restaurant in early 2016 based on a traditional New England lobster eatery.
