The lobster roll is a classic New England dish that is beloved from coast to coast. While the exact origin of the lobster roll is unknown, it is believed to have been invented in the early 1900s. The lobster roll is a simple yet delicious sandwich with a filling of lobster meat, mayonnaise, and seasonings, served on a toasted roll.

The traditional Maine-style lobster roll is typically served cold with a generous portion of lobster meat, along with mayonnaise, celery, and seasoning. This version is often served with a side of melted butter. The Connecticut-style lobster roll, on the other hand, is served warm, with a generous portion of lobster meat mixed with butter, and served on a toasted, buttered roll.

Over the years, the lobster roll has become a staple dish in the New England area, but it has also become popular across the United States. Whether you’re looking for a classic lobster roll or something with a bit more flavor, there is a lobster roll for everyone.
