Great Places for Lobster

Great Places for Lobster in Connecticut 24/7

The American lobster has likely been a dietary staple along the Connecticut shoreline for as long as the area has been populated. Although lobster is generally viewed as a luxury food around the world, in the American colonies its abundance may have led to its initial perception as poor man’s food. There are tales of prisoners/servants/apprentices/etc. petitioning for respite from the cruelty of having to consume lobster more than twice a week. A far cry from today’s Nutmeggers, who consume lobster morning, noon and night at restaurants—from seafood shacks to gourmet palaces—that turn the daily catch into dishes anything but ordinary.
