Lobster rolls - no mayo!

I've eaten my fair share of lobster rolls all over New England. I, too, look for no filler, light mayo and toasted buttered roll. My favorite, of this type, is the lobster roll at the "Raw Bar" in the Marketplace in Mashpee. But that's not what this discussion is about. Years ago, when I went to "Abbott's Lobster in the Rough" near Mystic, Connecticut, I had the most decadent lobster roll - just freshingly steamed and extracted lobster meat, dunked in drawn butter and served on a toasted buttered roll. I went nuts! The next time I found a buttery lobster roll was in Maine - Bar Harbor - and I had to go from place to place to find one with no mayonnaise. Since then - no luck! My wife and I will be moving to Boston at the end of the summer from Washington, DC and want to know - Is there any place in Boston which sells the buttery lobster roll?

P.S. I have already begun devouring the Chowhound Boston boards and am so looking forward to our move. For the past 10 months, we've lived in Washington , DC - went to 119 restaurants; last year, we lived in Philadelphia - went to 139 restaurants; prior to Philly, we lived our whole lives in New York State with New York City restaurants as our standard. I've already asked for Chowhound suggestions on areas to live and restaurants to try ("Moving to Boston" thread), and you have all been so helpful. You'll be hearing a lot more from me.
