I really love the seasonal restaurants in New England that serve a good lobster roll. It’s lobster, put on a New England style hot dog roll. The less mayonnaise or anything else added, the better the lobster roll. You basically want a well cooked lobster with some butter on a toasted hot dog roll.
The High Tide restaurant in Hillsborough, NH serves an excellent lobster roll, and their onion rings are excellent.
Wednesday nights are especially nice as it is “Classic Car” night. There is also local ice cream. Throw in a playground, and also if you eat outside your dog is welcome.
I’ve made the first of what will be many visits to the High Tide, it’s especially nice for guests that have never had a lobster roll. Lobster is of course wonderful, but also can be very messy to eat. That’s why you get a bib when you order one. Lobster rolls come with onion rings, no bib needed!
Oh man, those are my favorite kind of places! The fanciest restaurant in our Chicago neighborhood (the one with the Michelin star) serves authentic Maine lobster rolls. But they couldn’t find the rolls locally, so they had them flown in. (now they’ve convinced a local bakery to make rolls just for them.).
I’m glad the got the importance of the ROLL!
