If New England ever secedes, President Ortiz will probably place his hand on a lobster roll instead of a Bible when he’s sworn in as the first president of the breakaway republic. Split-top buns filled with fresh lobster meat are that important to us. So it’s bold of Alive and Kicking to serve their “lobster sandwich” on two pieces of buttered toast instead of a roll. But maybe they know better, because it’s excellent. Your other menu options at this little fish market with a handful of picnic tables are limited to whole boiled lobsters, a small selection of chowder and bisque, and plastic trays of steamer clams that will leave butter on your fingers for hours.
