Best Lobster Roll (2010)
Fresh chunks of tender claw and knuckle meat with little filler and just the right amount of mayo in a buttery side-split bun are only part of what make this plump lobster roll a hands-down favorite. Add to that the airy industrial warehouse chicness of this newcomer (just four months old), complete with striped banquettes, whitewashed walls, and ocean vibe (the red oars suspended from the high ceiling are a nice touch), and you’ve got a real New England contender. It’s a little taste of Nantucket along the shores of the Hudson.
Best Lobster Bisque (2011)
Start your meal with this hearty chowdawh, and you’ll swear you were airlifted to the shores of the Charles River. This mouthwatering medley of flavors, thanks to its creamy sherry base, chunks of lobster meat, and savory aroma, is a virtual edible love letter to New England, and a dish you’ll soon be back for.
Best Ice Cream Sandwich (2011)
Just one look—and lick—of Day Boat’s ice cream sandwich transports us back to our youth. Sure, the ice cream is creamier, and the chocolate wedges a bit more gourmet but, hey, we’re more grown up now, yes?
