Eat This: The Slider Inn’s Lobster Roll
I know that you probably are addicted to the sliders or the wing at the Slider Inn, but I have to recommend that on at least one trip, you skip the sliders and go for the lobster roll.
The roll isn’t really a roll so much as it is a bunch of lobster salad on a giant, folded piece of Texas Toast-style bread. It’s apparently a New England thing. The Slider Inn’s owner, Aldo, told me that they only use Maine lobster and import the bread. It comes with a mountain of fries, a pickle, and some spicy mayo (which I dipped my fries in – the sandwich was pretty good on its own).
It’s the priciest thing at the Slider Inn (priced at “market value”, but it’s the sort of thing that makes for a good special occasion meal.
The Slider Inn has two locations: Downtown and Midtown. Both are open 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. daily, with the kitchen open until 2 a.m.
