I know today is supposed to be a creative day; however, my lobster craft didn’t quite work out for me yesterday…so I’m going to try it again tonight and hopefully will have something for you tomorrow.
In the meantime, I thought it might be fun to look at the coolest restaurants where you can dine on this delicious dweller of the deep:
Topping the list is the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant in Maldives. Set 16 feet below the surface of the Indian Ocean, Ithaa gives diners a million dollar view of life in the ocean. Enjoy a lobster salad or their signature dish: “Crab tower with thin ciabatta and truffle mayonnaise and Maldivian banana and chili mascarpone with cream with crushed basil”.
The Five Islands Lobster Company is a little closer to home for most. Set in Georgetown, Maine, this cozy restaurant has served lobster to millions of people. There is no inside dining, so be prepared to eat outside and enjoy the beautiful view of the coast. My parents went to Five Islands a few years ago and thought it was fantastic. One thing to keep in mind, these lobster diners have been eating this “sea bug” for years…and it shows. Watching locals tear into their dinner might be even more entertaining to watch…
The Union Oyster House, located in Boston, is America’s oldest restaurant…possibly serving the likes of America’s Founding Fathers. While this cozy little establishment is known for their oysters, you can also get lobster here…fresh from the coast. My parents visited this location as well and, while neither are fans of oysters, they said the rest of the food was delicious.
If you’re looking for delicious lobster on the cheap, head out to Morse’s Lobster Shack in Maine. It’s a bit of a dive, but the locals are CRAZY about it. Universal recommendation: try the lobster rolls.
I have to say that Waterman Beach Lobster is THE place to go if you’re looking for delicious fresh lobster in the US. Winner of the prestigious James Beard Restaurant Award, this local hub serves some of the best lobsters (and pies!) Maine has to offer. I couldn’t resist showing you this picture of some of their famous plates…hungry yet?
