2017 Best Lobster Roll

Neptune Oyster

It takes a special kind of hot lobster roll to best its chilled brethren, but Neptune’s much-beloved version manages to pull it off. Seven ounces of lobster are tossed in melted butter and heaped on a grilled brioche bun that struggles under the weight of so much sweet claw and tail meat.
