The Scrumptious Summer Dish Of Georgia Is Here And You Do Not Want To Miss Out
Do you know how some people say that summer reminds them of a particular food? For many Georgians, it includes sweets, from the refreshing sweet tea to a slice of
homemade Georgia pecan pie. But for those of you who have a more savory summer craving, we have the most scrumptious summer dish you could imagine—both rich and flavorful, plus unflinchingly fresh. Plus, we have a few of the best restaurants in town to snag one from.
Georgia might not be the state that immediately comes to mind when you think of "lobster" but this summer may change all of that for you.
With coastal access that so many other states do not get, Georgia pulls in some of the freshest seafood around.
And while many of you may stick to the tried-and-true oyster dishes that pepper the menus of those coastal restaurants, we have a new summer treat that is taking over the state…
For those of you who are curious as to what in the world a lobster roll is—the lobster roll is a delicious, rich sandwich native to New England that uses fresh, thick lobster meat served inside a grilled, buttery bun.
But the lobster inside the sandwich isn’t just a lone ingredient, it is usually doused in tangy mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, and salt and pepper at minimum.
The good news for those reading who are already craving one of these sandwiches is that there are quite a few restaurants throughout Georgia that have an epic lobster roll worth trying.
Start with the new kid in town, Lapeer in Alpharetta, which allows guests to enjoy both hot and cold lobster rolls of their choosing.
Joe’s Homemade Cafe in Savannah also features an epic lobster roll, which thick chunks of fresh lobster meat overflowing from the bun.
You might not see another lobster roll quite as decadent as the one from BeetleCat in Atlanta—using a non-traditional bun, but still brimming with flavor.
It’s no surprise that a restaurant called Cousins Maine Lobster in Atlanta has deliciously jam-packed lobster rolls you’ll be back for.
Tybee Island Social Club is also a a perfect place to dine al fresco this summer and indulge in a lobster roll...or two.
Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar also offers a Connecticut-style or Maine-style lobster roll for those who have a particular taste.
