Lobster Rolls

WestN | Mar 5, 2009 07:04 AM

A couple times in the past week or two, I've run across lobster rolls on menus and it pisses me off to no end. How do places charge $20+ for them? This is possibly the biggest ripoff ever, seriously. Unfortunately, now I'm really craving one.
See, my problem is that when I think of lobster rolls, I think of summers in Maine as a kid. You'd just see someone on the side of the road or maybe at an ice cream stand selling them for like 5 or 6 bucks. I mean, this was about 10-15 years ago and I haven't been down east in years but $20?? We're talking about something here that boils down to just shredded lobster and mayo on a hot dog bun. I can't do it. I thought the price of lobster was down ...
Anyway, does anyone know of any decently priced, good lobster rolls in DC or Arlington? Actually, anywhere on the metro is acceptable and next month I'm gonna be heading to Baltimore and prob Annapolis so I'll take those suggestions too.
I feel like $10 is around what I'd be willing to throw down and I'm willing to accept the fact I'm gonna need to just shut up and make my own but any and all suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
