In search of the ULTIMATE Lobsta Roll

Chicky | Jun 23, 2006 06:51 PM

My quest for the best Lobsta Roll in Boston began last night at B&G and will continue until Labor Day. I plan to try as many rolls as I can find at place in the area, taking careful notes, and will report out in September. I'm calling it my Lobsta Safari...

Who makes the best Lobsta Roll?

Based on my meal last night at B&G we're off to an excellent start. The roll was very modern and minimalist - bun not toasted, lots of fresh lobster, very little mayo, nice side of fries, excellent service. At $24 it's still a value. The untoasted bun appears to work better when little mayo is used allowing the true flavor of the lobster to come out. If I wanted all that mayo, I'd order a tuna sub.

Where shall I go next?
