We were dying for a swim so we drove to Nahant Beach, Nahant, MA. After slogging through brown algae to get to a bit of cool, clear water, we felt we deserved a reward. Off to Nahant Fish & Lobster located in the little, tony, hamlet of Nahant at the very end of the Causeway which separates Nahant from Lynn.
Our efforts were rewarded by a superior lobster roll. Your $20 gets you a jam-packed roll with plenty of sweet knuckle and claw meat, the tiniest whisper of mayo, and just a tinkle of celery. It was so full that we each ate half and took the rest home for supper. No frills. No tables. Just the best lobster and a good-looking little fish market to boot.
Next time I’m getting the lobster grilled cheese sandwich. No fooling. I have a special dispensation from my cardiologist.
I think that I heard of them here, on the Boston board a few years ago. If I recall, I had asked for recommendations for roast beef sandwiches, and I believe that it was @passing_thru who mentioned Fresco’s.
ah, that’s brutal. I thought this lobster roll looked great–I’m usually not a celery fan in a lobster roll, but I admit that the incredibly tiny amount of celery in the pic above makes it look like a good addition!
