We're counting down to
80. Junior Lobster Roll from Linda Bean's Perfect Maine Lobster Roll
The menu here offers lobster bisque, Maine clam chowder, steamers, and crab, listed in a feminine script. Though the flowery font, wainscoted white walls, and leather high-back chairs suggest this is a restaurant where you'd sit down for a proper meal, the walk-up ordering loosens formality.
Grab a barstool with a view of Atlantic Avenue. Polish off a Shipyard draft. And go for the most casual fare: the lobster roll that's touted as perfect. Whole claw meat with a touch of mayo layers a toasted, buttered bun. Served with salt and vinegar fries, pickles, and slaw, it's an indulgent lunch for a summer day, especially for New Englanders missing a taste of home.
