Luke's Lobster to Ed's or Red Hook Lobster Pound. And the best part is that they all come to your door with their mobile trucks. The argument on who serves the best lobster roll will always be hotly contested by their loyal fans. But none of them offer lobster on grilled hot dogs!
This year, the cost of lobster is at an all-time low due to an excess in the lobster population because of our warm winter. Supply and demand working in tandem. :) So there is no excuse why you can't gather the family together and indulge in this decadent take on two all-American classics. While I may not be heading to Maine this summer, I can bring a little bit of Maine to me with some fresh Maine lobster. Isn't the world we live in grand?
Happy lobster-dog day!!
