Of course, I will eat lobster (properly prepared) in just about ANY form.
When we travel through Connecticut, we have noted several Roadfood places advertising lobster rolls.
Frankly, we’ve never visited any of them because we’re usually in a hurry to either get TO Maine, or back home FROM Maine (one of our favorite states to visit).
Anyway, for someone interested in how they REALLY
do lobster rolls in Connecticut, here’s an interesting link: http://merecat.org/food/dining/lobster-rolls/connecticut/
I have no idea who this Green guy at the website shown above might be, but he doesn't know diddly-squat about lobster rolls or lobster salad rolls. Hell, he doesn't even know that they do have hot lobster rolls in Maine.
The guy could probably benefit from checking out Roadfood where he'd find reviews of Maine eateries that serve the hot lobster rolls he claims don't exist in Maine. Here are at least three of them listed: Red's Eats, Wiscasset; The Clam Shack, Kennebunkport; and Bob's Clam Hut, Kittery.
This guy is so confused he doesn't even know what he says, himself. Get the following: "I mentioned that some of Connecticut’s lobster rolls are good. By that I mean you can get an authentic Maine-style lobster roll in Connecticut, but these are rare in my experience. That’s because Connecticutians have their own idea of what a lobster roll is. They don’t even have the same name for it."
So, according to thie Green, the lobster roll you get in Connecticut isn't even called a lobster roll in Connecticut. And then he goes on later to talk about ordering lobster rolls in Connecticut. What a mook!
Yessir! He's quite the authority on this subject.
By the way, although I've posted this information in the past, I thought I'd mention it again for those who haven't read about it. The Connecticut lobster roll originated in the 1930s at a place in Milford, Connecticut called Perry's. It was on U.S. 1, the Boston Post Road.
