With summer just around the corner and an abundance of warm weather on the way, we can finally unleash our cravings for some of Westchester’s most refreshing foods.
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.
46 Westerly Rd, Ossining
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!
19 Main St, Hastings-on-Hudson
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.
837 White Plains Rd, Scarsdale
Eastchester Fish Gourmet’s sandwich comes loaded up with Maine lobster on a buttered bun, and is served with coleslaw, golden sweet potato fries, and a spicy chipotle dipping sauce.
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.
49 N Riverside Ave, Croton-on-Hudson
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. More adventuous diners will also enjoy the “hot” option served in addition to the “classic.”
100 Titicus Rd, North Salem
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.
55 Abendroth Ave, Port Chester
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 seldom disappoints.
41 North Riverside Ave, Croton-on-Hudson
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 enjor fresh lobster salad on pane di casa with bacon, avocado, tomato, arugula, and garlic mayo.
