On My Plate: New York City

Where: Tasting Table’s Lobster Roll Rumble, New York City

What: When 20 restaurants famous for their lobster rolls come together under one roof, it’s a recipe for delicious, delicious success. Want them with mayo? You got it. Just butter? That too. Can’t decide? No problem. I don’t think I’ve ever been so simulaneously overjoyed and overstuffed in my entire life (because yes, I tried at least a bite of every single roll on offer). Add a cocktail bar, an ice cream bar, and proceeds supporting Share Our Strength, and it gets an outstanding two claws up in my books.

Amy Smithers was spotted at Luke’s Lobster eating yet another roll just three days after this event. If you ask her about it, she will claim she was dragged there by a friend—that is a half-truth at best.

An outstanding two claws up.
