When it comes to summertime eats on the East Coast, the lobster roll reigns supreme. Served hot and cold, the seemingly simple sandwich is nearly ubiquitous from Nova Scotia to Brooklyn as temperatures rise. While the warm lobster roll (served with butter instead of mayonnaise) has its roots in Connecticut, the cold lobster roll hails from Long Island. From seafood shacks to dockside markets to an upscale 150 year old hotel, we explore the best lobster rolls of Montauk and Eastern Long Island.
Dressing the part is essential to getting most out of a journey to Montauk's seafood shacks. Forget business casual and leave your leather jacket in the city. Cole Haan's Pinch Weekender mixes seaside comfort with a touch of bohemian edge. From the sand to the surf to sundowners, Pinch Weekender footwear and apparel is the perfect complement to Long Island's east end.
