Linda Bean, granddaughter of Maine's L. L. Bean, is bringing us lobster. Though new to the foodie business, she's got her own warf, her own fishermen, and now her own concept: lobster rolls, each with a full ¼ of meat, fresh and perfect and dripping butter on your grateful lap, all over the country. The restaurants -- called "Linda Bean's Perfect Maine Lobster Roll" -- will consist of a takeout window and a kitchen, just like the clam shacks of New England. And Delray Beach will be the first southern town to get one. We have no predictions of how this'll all turn out -- it could be as corporate and crappy as a Long John Silver's, or it could be the real deal. Certainly, with Madame Bean controlling every aspect of the lobster acquisition, your crustaceans ought to be fresh. Keep checking the website as opening day approaches.
