A Sandwich a Day: Lobster BLT from B&G Oysters in Boston
In this great country of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
If you're gonna mess with two perfect concepts—lobster rolls and BLTs—this is the way to do it.
Barbara Lynch's B.L.T. with Lobster ($28), a charter-menu classic at her chic South End raw bar, is one of those rare dishes that actually makes the concept of "fusion" seem appealing. Shucked lobster meat (cooked until perfect firm-tender doneness, of course) is heaped between slices of crusty ciabatta, along with crisp bacon, ripe red tomato slices, torn romaine, and a healthy slather of lemon juice-spiked Hellmann's. Oh, and the bread and butter chips, slaw, and hand-cut fries are top-notch, too.
