2014 BEST Lobster Roll

Alive & Kicking

Call us iconoclasts, but this year, the lobster roll that impressed us most technically isn’t a lobster roll at all. Let us introduce you to Alive & Kicking’s lobster sandwich, characterized by its buttered-and-toasted, sesame-crusted scali bread and simple, black-pepper-and-mayo-laced lobster-meat filling administered in absolutely perfect (i.e., inhalable) proportion.

    A lobstah roll on bread instead of a buttery grilled hot dog roll? No thanks. I will just head to Kelly’s on Revere Beach for one that’s authentic.
