The Best Lobster Rolls in NYC

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 28 comments

After having tasted rolls from nearly every shop that specializes in them, here are my three favorite. All of these guys to it right. Their rolls nail that simple balance between buttery bun (top-split New England-style, of course) and sweet, fresh lobster meat that tastes of lobster, not mayonnaise or dressing. Any of these rolls would be worth a detour in a drive along the New England coast. More

Cull & Pistol Nails the Classics and Creates Some New Ones

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

I'm a big stickler for properly cooked, ultra-fresh seafood at oyster bars like this, to the point where even the tiniest thing out of place can bring down the experience for me. At Cull & Pistol, they hit all of the classics just right, and even create new dishes that seem like they've existed forever. More

A Sandwich a Day: Lobster Roll at Acadia in Chicago

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

Acadia's lobster roll ($16) is as stripped down and sparse as the surroundings. Succulent and sweet lobster come tossed with only a little paprika, chive, and warm butter. More

A Sandwich a Day: Lobster Roll from GT Fish & Oyster

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

Cool hunks of sweet lobster meat are dressed ever-so-lightly with a house-made mayonnaise, before being nestled in a Labriola roll that has been buttered and grilled. What's most surprising is that while it is artfully presented and dressed, the succulent lobster meat is still the first thing you taste. More

Meet the Maker of New England Seafood Company Fish Market's Lobster Roll

Chicago Johnny Auer 3 comments

Of all of the lobster rolls I've ever had (and that includes four years of eating them when living in Boston), the one that the Mazza brothers have on their menu is hands down the purest, simplest version of the high-priced sammie. At $16.95 the roll comes with nearly a third-pound of lobster meat piled atop a griddled split-top bun. More

Can the $9 Lobster Roll Save the Fairway Cafe?

New York Zach Brooks Post a comment

If this is bad then I don't want to be good. Lost City posted a scathing critique of the Red Hook Fairway Cafe yesterday, calling it a "sad" and "abysmal failure." I'll admit I haven't been since the summertime,... More
