There is definitely a lot more coast to come which means seafood will still be plentiful, but I have made it to the big stops: Maine lobster and Maryland crab. My adventures in seafood have been nothing less than fabulous, so I thought I would share. The most rich thing I have had so far is the stews. I had both lobster and crab stew and will be making this recipe for years to come. I have to say though besides the tail, lobster is not my personal favorite. I like shellfish the best. Clams, oysters, mussels. The fried clam bellies had a different breading on it that melted in your mouth. Truly any seafood I saw I ate. SEE FOOD...SEAFOOD! The soft shell crab was the weirdest thing I tried. The legs tasted great, but I couldn't get into eating the whole body.
Here are a few seafood restaurant recommendations:
Try the lobster stew and the clam bellies!
It's fun and on the water, the fries are delish and the staff was super friendly and helpful. I liked that you had the option to have your lobster roll prepared 3 ways.
* If you want a crab roll or a shrimp roll get it while you're in Maine. Don't wait until you're Maryland because I made that mistake and I didn't see any crab rolls on any menu in Maryland.
The menu offers an overwhelming variety and you can't go wrong with any item.
For me any thing that said made with brown butter was a winner. I don't know what makes it so good but brown butter rules.
