Yankee Lobster Co
300 Northern Ave.
I had never been to this area before but this restaurant had rave reviews online and my man needed some clam chowder before he finished his Boston trip. We got here early for lunch, it was nice! No one else was there. But in the time it took me to scan the menu,a long line had formed behind me which worried me that we wouldn’t find a table (not much space in this joint but the free parking is a definite plus).
Lots of choices and the selection looked fresh!
My friend and Joe had the clam chowder which they both said was good. When I sampled some, it was on the watery side for me.
The lobster bisque was amazing! It was silky and yet there were 4 intact lobster claws in my bowl! The flavors really stood out and I felt bad for hogging it so I gave Joe 2 of the lobster claws.
My friend had the crabcake sandwich. Looked good!
These rolls were so money. So much crustacean meat between these two buns. The meats didn’t have too much flavor but the amount of meat was impressive for mid-December. Very generous meat proportions! If you can swing by here for some lobster bisque and lobster roll, you’re in for a treat!
