Maine: Cold lobster roll
> Restaurant: The Lobster Pool
> Location: Rockport

Lobster is so plentiful in Maine that many lobster shacks serve lobster that was plucked from the water less than 24 hours before. When steamed or boiled, chilled, tossed with a little mayo, and served on a split-top bun, there’s no better taste of Maine.
