Hot Lobster Roll, Abbott's Lobster in the Rough, Noank
( Leeanne Griffin )
In a state teeming with superior lobster rolls, diners keep coming back to Abbott's in Noank. It could be the stunning shoreline water views, or it could be the quarter-pound of fresh lobster meat with melted butter, piled on a toasted hamburger bun. Abbott's status as a seasonal destination makes the sandwich more craveworthy - the restaurant opens in early May and shutters around Columbus Day every year.
