Cousins Maine Lobster

One of the highlights of this summer has been the Cousins Maine Lobster pulling up at Weston Nurseries in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. The food truck became a national sensation on Shark Tank when its founders partnered with Barbara Corcoran. Now, Cousins Maine Lobster Trucks (and restaurants) can be found in cities around the country.

All of their food is phenomenal. Of course, there are traditional hot and cold lobster rolls. Those classics can be found everywhere, so I ordered some of the more exotic items. The lobster grilled cheese is fantastic. It's stuffed with cheddar and pepper jack cheeses. The lobster tots are also a favorite. The large portion of tots is topped with warm lobster, pico de gallo and a cilantro lime sauce. Cousins' soft lobster tacos are also a delight and are complimented with a cup of their clam chowder or lobster bisque. Cousins also offers a lobster quesadilla, shrimp tacos and a lobster tail and tots. There are kids meals and whoopie pies for dessert.

Check out their website and social media for where their trucks will appear next.

Add Sky Restaurant in Norwood, Massachusetts to the long list of restaurants that has closed permanently because of struggles from the coronavirus. The restaurant was in business for nearly 20 years. It was known for its gigantic Sunday brunch buffet, which always included a chocolate fountain. The owner of Sky also owns 3 Restaurant in Franklin, which has a similar menu. Sky gift cards are also being honored there.

It's been a brutal week for restaurants in and around Boston. The Fours closed its popular location near the TD Garden. LIR on Boylton Street in Boston is closing. Legal Test Kitchen in the Seaport closed after 15 years in business. The Friendly Toast shut down their popular spot in Cambridge. Anna's Taqueria closed down their original location in Brookline after 25 years. In Hopkinton, Carbone's restaurant is closing after 87 years in business. The owners do hope to sell to new owners. And last week, Covid-19 forced Stellina Italian restaurant to close its doors in Watertown after 34 years. 

Needless to say, support your favorite restaurants right now.
