The term “New England charm” may conjure up images of quaint coastal towns, but when Mobstah Lobstah came West, it skipped the cute. Instead, Mobstah Lobstah deals in fresh Maine seafood served in a style that’s more Tony Soprano than Martha Stewart.

The brawn behind the venture, mixed martial arts fighter Allen Berube, was born and raised in Maine. UFC fans may recall the fighter-turned-restaurateur from Spike TV’s Ultimate Fighter 5.

Berube went by the nickname “Mobstah Lobstah” as a fighter, and already owns and operates one nicknamesake seafood restaurant in his current home town of Tampa, Fla. He expanded into the Las Vegas market in late October when he opened the first of two locations inside Doc Holliday’s, 2551 Anthem Village Dr. The franchise has already expanded since, opening its second spot two weeks later at 9310 S. Eastern Ave., near Interstate 215.
