2022 Lobster Roll

Editors’ Choice

Bob Lobster, Newbury

Chef Brad DeLibero has a way with crustaceans, whether you’re looking for a classic, New England-style roll, lightly dressed, or one of his special inventions. We’re partial to the Wasabi, a quarter pound of fresh lobster on toasted brioche, topped with Asian slaw, wasabi cream, and sesame seeds. But he’s always coming up with something new, so explore all the variations. The seafood shack vibe on the Plum Island marsh is a super place to soak up some ambiance—the beachy dining room is the perfect spot to enjoy your lobster roll. 49 Plum Island Tpke., Newbury, 978-465-7100,
