We started our meal at Westbrook with the clam chowders, both the Rhode Island and the New England. Both were terrific, seasoned very well, with large chunks of clams. Then the hot lobster roll arrives on a grilled hot dog roll with a side of clarified butter and coleslaw. Excellent fresh coleslaw: you can taste the chopped onion and hear the crunch of the cabbage and carrots. The dressing is a nice mixture of subtle sweet and vinegar.
Now for the reason we are here: the lobster roll! There had to be over two cups of lobster on my roll; hot and delicate claw and tail pieces. I enjoyed mouthful after mouthful of buttery goodness.
After our meal we strolled through their market and picked up some chowder and fresh fish to cook at home. The food at Westbrook is so great, I booked them to cater my wedding!
