The Lobster Roll
This is not an every day occurrence. Even under normal circumstances, lobster is expensive, and recent supply issues have only driven the price higher. But, whenever the budget allows, the lobster roll at Public Fish & Oyster always rewards the splurge.
In the roll’s birthplace in New England, where lobster passion runs red hot, a rift exists about how to make the filling. Some toss chilled chunks of cooked lobster in a mayonnaise dressing. Others prefer the lobster pieces served warm, drizzled with melted butter. Diplomatically, Public Fish & Oyster sidesteps the debate by offering both. And, while each is delicious, the unadorned “Connecticut-style,” with nothing but warm lobster and butter on a toasted brioche roll, yields the purest realization of crustacean appreciation. Available only during happy hour, it makes for a very happy hour.
