A lobster roll on a toasted split bun, stuffed with lobster in a creamy mayo and lemon dressing with some potato chips on the side.

Lobster Roll

A toasted bun cradling sweet-as-can-be lobster swaddled in mayo. Just like what you’ll find along the winding highways and byways of coastal Maine.

Two bowls of chicken posole, with a bowl of sour cream, some tomato wedges, cilantro, sliced radish, and tortilla shells scattered around them.

Chicken Posole

This chicken posole is darn close to authentic Mexican posole and combines chicken and hominy in a broth made from charred tomato and chiles. Mexican magnificence that’s muy delicious.
