Ten Best Maine Lobster Shacks Wed, 06/3/09 8:17 AM (permalink)

Yes, yet another "Best of..." list.  HOWEVER, this one,

courtesy of Travel + Leisure magazine seems pretty darn good, FYI:

      Now that is one of the best lists that I have seen.  I have been to seven out of the ten.  Wish that I was leaving for Maine right now!

        I've only been to two out of ten.  Guess I have to get cracking.....  Sorry, couldn't resist!

          How about good places to get a lobster roll outside of New England. I'm not going to be there for a while. :( Anything in the mid-Atlantic?

            Dude, have you not been here...

             

             
            ...the Tackle Box in the old Georgetown Bagelry location in Washington, D.C. and with a lobster roll hailed as a "classic" by The Washington Post as well as one with "good chunks of meat, a little mayo and no filler (and) served on a toasted potato bun"?

                  Five Islands is the best, both in terms of quality and view!

                      I am so excited that Shaw's in New Harbor is on that list. I have many happy memories there with my aunt who live just a couple of miles away.  Not far from Red's Eats and the Pemaquid Point lighthouse.  One of the most beautiful views in the country, for me.

                            While I've had the pleasure of enjoying several of those spots, in many trips to Deer Isle over the the last 15 years I never new about the Bagaduce in Brooksville. I can assure you that will be corrected in late July !

                            Thanks for the post.

                              No, that was over at Camelot. She hung out there with Mayor Barry.

                                    Truth is, I have yet to order the lobster roll at this M Street haunt but I have twice ordered grilled fish at the Tackle Box and both times it was fantastic. Speaking of great grilled fish in DC, have you checked-out Surfside north of Georgetown and in the old, original Austin Grill location (2444 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20007, 202 / 337-0004)? (You know, across Wisconsin Avenue from The Travelin Man's must stop when he's in the nation's capital?) 
                                      

                                      
                                      
                                    In addition to it also serving up great, simple and unadorned grilled seafood fare, it has a fabulous rooftop deck open for dining. (It's also my understanding that the proprietor of such opened up some empty lot / make-shift version of Surfside across from the Washington Nationals' new park and which I hope to check out this weekend.)

                                      Thanks Tony. I love fish, good to hear that I can bribe people to go with me by selling the roof. Not this week as DC has become a rain forest, but when the skies clear.

I'm not going to be there for a while. :( Anything in the mid-Atlantic?

                                          
                                         
                                          

                                        Dude, have you not been here...

                                         

                                          
                                        ...the Tackle Box in the old Georgetown Bagelry location in Washington, D.C. and with a lobster roll hailed as a "classic" by The Washington Post as well as one with "good chunks of meat, a little mayo and no filler (and) served on a toasted potato bun"?

                                        Thanks much. 

                                         
                                         
                                        Truth is, I have yet to order the lobster roll at this M Street haunt but I have twice ordered grilled fish at the Tackle Box and both times it was fantastic. Speaking of great grilled fish in DC, have you checked-out Surfside north of Georgetown and in the old, original Austin Grill location (2444 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20007, 202 / 337-0004)? (You know, across Wisconsin Avenue from The Travelin Man's must stop when he's in the nation's capital?) 
                                          

                                          
                                          
                                        In addition to it also serving up great, simple and unadorned grilled seafood fare, it has a fabulous rooftop deck open for dining. (It's also my understanding that the proprietor of such opened up some empty lot / make-shift version of Surfside across from the Washington Nationals' new park and which I hope to check out this weekend.)





                                        Thanks, Tony B! You da' man! And darn that Travelin Man with his adult-oriented hyperlinks! Anyhoo and ABOUT Surfside's satellite operations across from the main entrance of DC's Nationals Park (home of your worst place in all of MLB Washington Nationals): I went there yesterday and while their "Bullpen" set-up is serving tacos, their scrumptious FISH tacos are not amongst them (just beef or chicken), FYI.

                                          So, can I assume that you were at Nationals Park to bear witness to the thrashing administered by Livan Hernandez and the rest of the New York "Thank God for the Nationals or We'd be Below .500" Mets???

                                            Dude, it was five-to-zero in the TOP of the first inning. I'm not proud to admit that at that precise point, I gave serious thought to leaving, more maximizing my day and cutting my lawn.

                                              I was driving back from Atlanta last night and, for some unknown reason, XM radio aired the entire Nats post-game call-in show.  For some further unknown reason, I chose to listen to it.  If I were Manny Acta, I'd be wary of a group showing up on my lawn with torches.

                                              BUT....You are gonna like the guy that they take with the #1 pick in the draft tomorrow.  No kidding.  He'll be pitching in DC by next spring.  Guaranteed (barring injury, of course).

                                                The only problem with that is that the

                                                Nats have not exactly had the best of luck

                                                in signing their draft picks. Can you say?:

                                                  Trust me.  Strassburg will make you forget about Crow.  Ironically, on the call-in show that I heard yesterday, one of the callers actually suggested that the Nationals consider taking Crow with their replacement pick from not signing him last year.  Huh?  Aside from the fact that the guy won't be around - that kind of logic just makes me wonder if you Nats fans are smoking the dope.

                                                  Oh, and I hear that Stephen Strassburg really likes lobster (I would hate to derail a thread), and after tomorrow, can afford to buy for all of us at the next Roadfood meet-up.
