Lobster Roll

2017 Winner: Belle Isle Seafood


Looking for shore-shack ambiance but can’t hit the Maine coast? This fish market/restaurant in Boston’s backyard, just over the bridge from Eastie in Winthrop, is your answer. Fried seafood and icy beers are a draw, but the Maine lobster roll is the stud of the lineup: a proper split-top bun generously stuffed with mayo-kissed tail and claw meat, plus a token lettuce leaf. It’s so canonical it could illustrate the dictionary definition.
