Ridgewood Openings: Mouthwatering Lobster Piled High on a Roll.

Even if you can’t get away to the beach, you can still the taste of fresh New England style lobster rolls right here in town. Yes, Jack’s Lobster Shack has arrived! When you step inside, you’ll feel like you’ve magically left Ridgewood and arrived in Maine. The atmosphere is laid back and beachy with brightly colored turquoise chairs and white brick walls. But the draw is the lobster! The lobster is generously piled high on rolls with just the right amount of mayo and celery then topped with chives and served with salty chips, coleslaw pickle. The roll is reasonably priced at $17.

For those of you who prefer it with butter (I’m happy to have it either way), you’ll love the Connecticut roll; lobster is served warm on a roll with just the right amount of butter. Not a fan of lobster? Try their fish tacos served with pico de gallo, salsa verde, pickled red cabbage and sour cream on a corn tortilla. They also have clam chowder, grilled cheese or mac & cheese (although this, too, is better when topped with rich lobster and truffles–we’ll diet tomorrow.)

Jack’s is located at194 East Ridgewood Avenue and open daily from 11am to 9pm.  Sundays and Mondays they close at 8pm.
