If you love lobster, but don't enjoy the mess and hassle of the shelled variety, a lobster roll is a perfect option this summer. Some people like the cold Maine style roll with lobster tossed in mayo and celery. But, if you have never had a Connecticut style Lobster roll, put it on your bucket list!
Sitting inside a soft, New England style hot dog bun, a Connecticut Lobster Roll is filled with tender chunks of picked lobster meat drenched in warm melted butter. Crisp slaw or crunchy hot fries are the normal accompaniments to these delicious treats. Want to know where you can get one this summer?
