Lobster Rolls / Fenway

Lucky Basil | Jan 2, 201208:01 PM


Two questions:
1. Where can I get the *best* lobster roll in Boston (even willing to drive an hour to an hour and half outside Boston) - either mayo based or butter? Price is no issue.
2. Before or after seeing a game at Fenway - where to eat? Aside from the places around Fenway (e.g., Lansdowne street, etc.) - price is no issue. I am thinking Eastern Standard?

Having browsed the posts in this forum, I gather the best lobster roll is at Neptune? I have never been there. Aside from the bread issue, is James Hook the go-to as well? I grew up west of Boston (Wellesley), and my friend, when asked, immediately said "James Hook." Is that accurate?
Are there any places in Maine (preferably close to MA) that would trump both Neptune and James Hook? What about summer shack? I would guess that would be a good bet? I am planning a trip to Boston with a friend, and he insists on scheduling a lobster roll, the best, at no cost issue. He also wants to see a game, hence the Fenway question. I am not a huge fan of Legal, so I probably won't consider that an option, unless someone can tell me I am wrong with that assessment? Thanks in advance!
