Order the spinach

Funny, Mateo! I've had far too many meals at The Losbter (client fave--they never want to go anywhere else!), but have managed to pick out a few items on the menu that are fairly reliable.
Appetizer~Lobster Salad w/ sweet corn & tarragon pancakes or oysters if they have them. Occasionally, we order some of the entree crabcakes to share or the fries with truffle oil.
Entree~the Wild Salmon, Scallops or Halibut. I've never enjoyed any of the lobster entrees.
Dessert~I like dessert although I usually pass when I'm at The Lobster. I do recall sharing a chocolate bread pudding a while back and a some chocolate cupcake thing that weren't too bad, but obviously not real memorable.
Enjoy the view!
I have been underwhelmed by their lobster dishes. I just took a look at the menu and I noticed several things missing.
My favorite scallop dish has been replaced by a Scallop St Jacques. The mashed potaoes with lobster are conspicuous by their absence. Have they changed chefs recently?
