With summer in full swing, let’s unleash our cravings for some of Westchester’s most refreshing foods, shall we? At the top of this list are, of course, lobster rolls. They are a staple of New England cuisine, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy them right here in Westchester! Pull up a seat and dig into some of these succulent seafood sandwiches.

The Boathouse

46 Westerly Rd, Ossining
914.923.6466

This lobster roll is as classic as they get: chunks of claw meat slathered in tarragon aioli and served on a toasted and buttered New England-style hot dog bun, accompanied by a side of French fries and coleslaw. Come to The Boathouse for live music and a scenic view of the Hudson River, stay for the lobster rolls!

Bread and Brine

19 Main St, Hastings-on-Hudson
914.479.5243

Using a hefty buttered roll stuffed with whole chunks of lobster meat and creamy mayo, this Maine-inspired Hastings establishment is determined to bring quality seafood to the table. The potato crisps are somewhat lackluster but the subtle zing of lemon juice and crunch of the French fries add an exciting flair to the palate.

Kee Oyster House

126-128 E. Post Rd, White Plains

This tasty sandwich is infused with herbs and lemon zest. The brioche bun is toasted and buttered, with the word KEE artfully branded onto the top of the bun. They emphasize that the roll is “light on the mayo, heavy on the lobster.” For an added crunch, it’s served with Old Bay chips.

Ocean House

49 N Riverside Ave, Croton-on-Hudson
914.271.0702

The Maine Lobster Roll at Ocean House is made up of a whole pound of lobster in a buttered and toasted side-split bun. Other than the lobster, celery, and lemon juice, this roll is nothing without Hellman’s mayonnaise. Served with steak fries and coleslaw, this is a simple and delicious lobster roll. Pro tip: Check the day’s “blackboard” before heading out — this beauty makes an appearance once in a blue moon.

Purdy’s Farmer and the Fish

100 Titicus Rd, North Salem
914.617.8380

Served at brunch, lunch, and dinner, the north-county farm-to-table restaurant offers its “Downeast” lobster roll two ways: “warm, naked, and buttered” or chilled with cumber and fresh lemon aioli.

Saltaire Oyster Bar

55 Abendroth Ave, Port Chester
914.939.2425

Lobster is a specialty at Saltaire, with live lobsters brought in daily and a host of dishes that utilize their exceptionally fresh inventory. Served butter-poached on a toasted New England-style roll and packed with pickled celery and herbs for added flavor, this lobster roll never disappoints.

The Tavern at Croton Landing

41 North Riverside Ave, Croton-on-Hudson
914.271.8020

With this restaurant’s luscious lobster rolls, you can enjoy the generously buttered, medium-toasted rolls and refined ratio of lobster meat to mayonnaise. The consistency is balanced by the combination of silky chunks and shreds of lobster meat, and the crunch of the celery and side of pickle. Alternately, opt for the lobster BLAT and enjoy fresh lobster salad on pane di casa with bacon, avocado, tomato, arugula, and garlic mayo.
