New England. While it’s often cold and rainy, and while the winters are ridiculously long, we do have more than our fair share of perks to balance things out—gorgeous autumn leaves, the Red Sox, maple syrup, the list goes on and on. And no doubt about it, we have the world’s best lobster—and really, is there anything better than that?
A few weeks ago, I stopped at Danny’s Drive-In, one of those classic drive-ins where it’s like stepping back in time. Danny’s has been serving up cheeseburgers, milkshakes, fried clam strips, onions rings and more since 1935. (Health food it’s not!) When I pulled into the parking lot, I immediately noticed a sign that read “Yes, we have lobster rolls!” I promptly placed my order and, well…WOW! This was easily one of the best meals I’ve enjoyed ever.
The beauty of a lobster roll is in the simplicity. A soft hot dog bun piled high with warm, buttery lobster meat, served with a little cup of drawn butter and a lemon wedge. That’s it. That’s all you need. Take a bite and let the butter drip down your chin. Mmmm!
