Dinner at Lobster in the Rough

We took Lenny out with us for seafood on Thursday night. Lobster in the Rough on Route 1 in York is the out-back take out counter with open seating to its sit down version out front. With good weather you have to sit and enjoy for a while. They have a full service bar out front, live entertainment and bocce.

Last year Margot and I killed a couple plates of fried clams, scallops, shrimp, onion rings and a mound of fries. We had already had all of these things earlier in the week so we opted for lobster rolls with smaller portions of fries and onion rings. We were not disappointed at all. The pieces of lobster were massive, they were seasoned well and not drowning in mayo. The bun was toasted and the fried snacks were cooked perfectly.

We knew we were going to be tormenting Lenny this week so we blindfolded him while we ate dinner.

After dinner Lenny had a couple of beers and got in on giving Merv a hard time. Some friend!

We look happy, and we were. It was one of those beach days you dream of.

We finished the night with some Ancient Fire wine sitting around a bonfire and telling stories. Here’s to vacation!

This week we drank Amarone from 2008, Pinot Noir from 2009, Syrah/Mourvedre from 2009 and some of all of our whites late 2008 to early 2010.
