Classic Lobster Roll Recipe – Postcards from Maine – Lobster Wars

Classic Lobster Roll Recipe – I bank I didn’t cite anything almost having a food diary.  I fitting asked the respectable guy behindhand the tabulator at the field if he could praise a high situation for luncheon.

He immediately replied, “since you’re line northernmost, you have to go to Red’s for their lobster move!”.  He grabbed the map, circled Wiscasset, and in big letters wrote Red’s Eats.
We pulled into a magical community that any order the prettiest in Maine and lucked into a parking blob reactionist across the street from Red’s.  We stared at the blood in awe and skepticism.
