I know, I know ... Wrong board. But I posted it on Northern New England like 3 weeks ago and got zero responses.
Because so many in Boston frequent Maine, I thought I would repost here. .
Thanks. The Hamster
Any Lobster Shacks/Pounds etc open now?

Friends will be visiting the first week of March and want to do southern Maine lobster at a waterfront kind of place like Barnacle Billy's or the lobster pound.
My first thought is that most of those places close in Oct and open in April.
Will there be any open in early march?
Warrens Lobster House in Kittery (pretty water view) is opened year round and Bayleys Lobster Pound in Scarborough will re-open in March...no date on their website yet.
Well, not exactly a lobster shack, but you can eat at ICOB or Summer Shack; I guarantee good lobster.
Some of my favorite lobster preperations can be found in Chinatown.
As to Maine: I do not know enough.
Well if the weather continues to bless us with rain and snow that CA needs - you might keep a window table at the No Name as a backup.
I just heard a tremor go thru my computer like a chowhound earthquake with hounds across the land shouting a primal "Noooooooo..."
BUT - they make arguably the best seafood chowder around, before the gloppy crap with thickeners took over as NE Chowder. And steamed lobster is not rocket science, as long as it is lively and not in the tanks too long. BUT don't let them order anything else on the menu.
