Then I was introduced to the Connecticut style lobster roll.
My brother and sister-in-law took my family to what they have researched as one of the better places for Connecticut style lobster rolls. What is this style? It's fresh steamed lobster straight out of the water, dressed in butter and lemon, and served on a warm, toasted bun. You get warmth, freshness, crunchiness.. buttered crunchiness because the butter coats the toasted bun.. it's just soo good.
Lobster Landing is totally the place to go if you're in Connecticut looking for a great lobster roll. The way they make it totally just celebrates the fresh picked and freshly steamed lobster. I'm a fan now. I totally choose the Connecticut style over the traditional cold lobster in a bun.
And if you want a little variety and meat, they also serve hot dogs and sausages. This is a great place to drive to on a sunny day to enjoy the outdoor eating by the water. Bring your shades and enjoy an afternoon of casual dining by the water. I can't wait to go back the next time I'm in Connecticut.
