You'd think any sandwich loaded with lobster would be divine, but they can't all be as stellar as the lobster roll Phil had on the East Coast. Andrew recently ordered the lobster BLT with cucumber-mint salad at San Francisco's Waterbar, but the sando proved to be a great idea, poorly executed, with stale bread and not very flavorful shellfish. For $22, lobster or no, a sandwich should be damn near perfect.

I haven't been able to go east to feast on the lobster glut that's making NYC a more delicious place, but Between the Bread reader Phil is on the scene. At a recent visit to Sag Harbor, NY, he sampled the bounty at Bay Burger.
That is not a mini lobster roll, just a normal-size lobster roll in front of the world's largest ketchup bottle(ew). At $14, Bay Burger's lobster roll was overflowing with top quality lobster meat and not too much mayo. See it in action!
I have always wanted to try a lobster roll — especially after my disappointing lobster club sandwich — but I've never been to lobster country in Maine. Enter the next best thing: Woodhouse Fish Company.
I used to live a few blocks from the Market Street location of this New England-style seafood joint, and now that I've moved, Woodhouse has a second location on Fillmore, about a 15-minute walk from my place. It's like the neighborhood restaurant keeps following me around.
The other night, I finally ordered the lobster roll, a decadent dinner of rich lobster meat encased in a traditional, buttery split-top roll. I'm sure it's not as good as Maine's, but for now, it definitely did the trick. If I ever make it out of my neighborhood, what lobster roll joints would you recommend?
