Lobster Rolls at Westfield Seafood

Westfield Seafood sells a great lobster salad sandwich all year, but starting mid-July, they offer a no kidding lobster roll. They put all the meat from a freshly cooked 1 ¼ pound lobster on a butter grilled top split hot dog roll and serve it with a touch of mayo and a side of fries. This is what summer tastes like!  220 South Ave. W., 908.233.3042.  www.westfieldseafood.com
