For my main course I chose Ethel's Lobster Roll, named after the owners Grandmother. The fresh lobster was generously dressed in a mixture of mayo and creme fraiche laced with crunchy celery and red onion, all of it piled high onto a soft rosemary roll. Despite the bulkiness of the roll, the lobster meat was hard to contain. I made a mess of myself in the process, and after a loosing battle, succumbed to eating my delicious lobster with a fork. The delicate slivers of kettle chips were nicely seasoned and crispy, the accompanying cole slaw was zesty with a light crunch. I normally learn towards the breakfast side of brunch, wanting to start my day with an egg centered dish, but the lobster lover in me could not pass this up! Plus, this is a restaurant know for their seafood. (Of course, oysters in particular, which I must return for!)Just a few of the 40 attendees, pictured below, photo compliments of Megan.
