New England Lobster Market and Eatery Food Picks:
Naked Lobster Roll ($17.50) All rolls & sandwiches come with slaw and TJ’s Chips. Excellent bun and lots of tender, fresh lobster. Not as much lobster as Old Port, but still adequate.
Crab Salad ($15) had a reasonable amount of fresh dungeness crab, could have had more.
Maine Lobster Platter – 1 1/4 lb. ($20) Served with TJ’s chips, slaw and a roll. Beautiful steamed lobster. About as pure as it gets. Messy but worth it. On another visit, we had the two pound lobster ($39) which was huge and still extremely sweet.
One dozen raw oysters ($25) contained several different of very fresh oysters. Cheaper than most restaurants and possibly fresher.
