Whole Steamed Lobster
Last summer, my wife and I had a wonderful steamed lobster dinner at Moby Dick's in Welfleet. Simply done, butter on the side, wonderful sweet taste, checked table cloths.
I'm in search of something like this closer to Boston. I've been to the Summer Shack and wasn't impressed. I know there is also the deal at the Palm with a Lobster for two, but I'm looking for something more casual. We've had all the great lobster rolls in the area, but we don't know who does a good whole lobster. Any ideas?
BTW, we aren't brave enough to make our own lobster at home.
The Mt. Vernon in Somerville has twin and triple lobster specials. Think the twin is aprox. $12.00, excellent.
You must get over your fear and try cooking some at home!! I bought some from James Hooks a while back and they're just so good, nothing like what I've had in restaurants. Put them in the freezer for a while so that the become a bit slow before you throw them into the boiling hell.
If you want to have them at home but don't want to do the killin', you can ask your fishmonger (or even grocery store) to steam them for you. It will take about 15 minutes while you shop around, then come back and pick them up.
