Where can I get a lobster roll in philadelphia
They sell them at Grace Tavern at 23rd and South, and they're pretty good, but not "coast of Maine in the summertime" great. Might satisfy a craving.
Washington Square has/had one on the menu.
Philadelphia Fish and Sansom St. Oysters are both likely candidates as well.
Philadelphia FIsh & Co. closed about 2 weeks ago. It was replaced by some Mexican BBQ place. Over the past year the lobster roll had gone from the city's best, to a disgusting glob of mayonnaise with a few pieces of lobster roll in it. In other words, good riddance to its closing.
The Sansom St. Oyster House has been closed for about 6 months now. It is supposed to reopen in the spring, but will it? Who knows.
