Eat like a local ireport
Hi! I wanted to submit a report for eat like a local but having technical difficulties. Here is the copy and the photo is attached. My name is spotter123 Lobster Bomb Just up the street from a moderately good and extremely crowded destination lobster restaurant in Noank, CT. sits a locals favorite, Ford's Lobster. The 33 seat, under-the-radar gem is located on a well-worn working dock where a water view is virtually unavoidable. During the summer, the chef-owner cooks on an outdoor grill under a pop-up tent and during colder months on the second floor of a building in the tiny marina that Ford's calls home. The restaurant serves up some awesome, very simple, authentic local fare - the chowders and lobster bisque are delicious (the Rhode Island clear broth is my favorite), They serve a great lobster dinner, a terrific selection of local shellfish, even the hot dogs are worth ordering. But the reason to go? The Lobster Bomb. A lobster roll on crack. The Ford's Lobster Bomb has double the usual amount of lobster weighing in at a 1/2 lb of claw and tail meat and is served with a generous drizzle of.... wait for it....lobster bisque. It is worth traveling for. Fords is BYOB, which in my book is even better, because you get to bring your own brand of beer or a cold bottle of Rose and settle in for the view. Knowing the insider spot to go in this neck of the woods makes eating at Ford's that much more delicious, especially as the mini vans and occasional tour bus roll down Riverview Avenue toward the touristy joint 200 yards down the road.
