This is the best Lobster roll in the city. They've actually got several styles of roll here, including the buttery, warm Connecticut style, and the the vinagrette-y, probably invented by them, Tuscan Style. Get them if you want but only if you're getting two. The move is the Maine-style roll. It strikes an excellent balance of mayo, spice, sea, and most importantly, buttery bun. They use only knuckle meat, which is said to be the sweetest, and they top it all of with a hit of lemon. You won't do any better outside of Maine.
I never go to Red Hook with out getting a lobster roll from Red Hook Lobster Pound. It's delicious and one of the cheapest lobster rolls around. Plus, Red Hook is like a mini sea town, so there's no better place to enjoy an authentic lobster roll. They also have other awesome lobster items, like lobster mac and cheese that's hard to ignore.
