Pinchy’s Lobster Co opened recently at The Factory at Franklin — a new project from BJ Lofback of Funk Seoul Brother (which formerly occupied the same space).

The name of the game at Pinchy’s — the lobster roll. Here, it comes two traditional ways: Maine-inspired, served cold, but with Southern favorite Duke’s mayonnaise, and Connecticut-style warm with melted butter.

The East Coast favorite sandwich also gets an oh-so-Nashville twist here — the Pinchy’s Hot Lobster Roll, a unique take made with Maine lobster poached in Nashville hot butter. It’s served with fresh chives and hot giardiniera on a Charpier’s brioche bun.

Sandwiches comes served with hand-sliced chips served with dipping sauces. Other menu offerings include a lobster-crowned cobb salad and lobster mac and cheese.

The Factory at Franklin is located at 230 Franklin Road.

Funk Seoul Brother is not permanently closed, but is currently on pause during the pandemic. The popular OG food truck from chef B.J. Lofback was focused on Korean street food — with popular dishes like Korean fried chicken, poke, and ramen. Lofback also served a stint going viral for his sushi burritos around town. While he vowed to never serve them again, Lofback last year launched Boom Bop Burrito — a boombox-plastered trailer exclusively serving the sushi burritos the public demanded that has also pressed pause given the pandemic.
