Hold the Mayo Connecticut, because it’s National Lobster Day!
June marks warm weather, beach gatherings, and of course, seafood on the Connecticut Shoreline. And what’s better than a Connecticut-style lobster roll?
Connecticut’s Best Lobster Roll
One + Company is back for Season 2 of Hold the Mayo, a show dedicated to finding Connecticut’s best lobster roll (served HOT with butter!).
Last year, we visited 19 different restaurants to try out their lobster rolls – and there are so many delicious ones out there! But the search isn’t over just yet, which is why we’ve extended into Season 2.
If you’re interested in seeing last year’s scores, see this post!
We’re fortunate to have access to unbelievable seafood in Connecticut, served by some of the most talented and hardest working people in the restaurant industry. Last year, we started Hold the Mayo as a way to highlight some of the area’s most beloved restaurants and food stands during a challenging time for all.
This year, we’re headed to a different batch of restaurants, which have all worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic. Let’s continue to show the restaurant industry some love all summer long!
