Reading Jim's essay on his trip to lower New England
got me thinking about my twice yearly visits to Maine
via the Bangor airport. There's a restaurant just as
you leave the airport and turn left called Captain
[somebody's]. I can never remember the Captains's last
name. Any of the airport personnel can point you in
the right direction I'm sure. They have the best
lobster roll in the state, and I've sampled a lot.
They use a hot dog type bun, buttered and toasted and
lobster meat from at least one whole lobster, maybe
more. The menu is otherwise undistinguished. The
chowder is gloppy. But the lobster roll...sublime. p.
