Alive & Kicking Lobsters
Split-top buns filled with fresh lobster meat are as central to Boston’s identity as Dunkin’, or Ben Affleck, or Ben Affleck drinking Dunkin’. But Alive & Kicking takes a different approach to the classic. Instead of a roll, this tiny seafood counter hidden away on a residential street (in the driveway of the owner’s home) serves its “lobster sandwich” on two slices of buttered toast, and it’s one of the best bites of crustacean in the area. Pick one up for an on-the-go lunch, or grab a picnic table for an outdoor seafood feast that should also include chowder, bisque, and steamed shellfish.
