There is, effectively, no lobster roll that is not a Maine lobster roll. Connecticut may lay claim to a style of this seafood-shack favorite—served warm and doused in butter—but as warming water pushes lobstering up into the far northern stretches of New England, the only place where you can eat a roll in close proximity to where the lobster was actually caught (which, let’s be real, is the optimum dining setting) is on the coast of Vacationland.
