Does Chicago have a good Lobster Roll?

I find it hard to believe that a city like Chicago would not have a Lobster Roll. One would think that Chicago would be a prime market for a delicious concoction of Lobster, Mayo, Butter, and Bread but I cannot recall a single restaurant serving them.

      The Fish Guy will do them for takeout with advance notice.

        A good source tells me that Parker's Restaurant on Highland Ave at I-88 has excellent lobster rolls for lunch. This is in Downers Grove, but those in the western suburbs might be interested in trying them.

          I don't see it on Parker's lunch menu on their website at www.parkersamerican.com but maybe they sometimes have it as a special. Regardless, Parker's is a terrific place for fresh seafood in delicious preparations. I eat there often for lunch and everything has been consistently excellent. (Pizza fans will enjoy their certified Neapolitan pizza too.)
