80. The Junior Lobster Roll From Linda Bean's Perfect Maine Lobster Roll

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.
