IT'S NEW YEAR'S EVE. TIME FOR CHINESE!


Mandarin Cuisine
It's New Year's Eve, a time when so many of us rush to our favorite Chinese restaurant to order a load of yummy take out. This year, I'm enjoying some chicken fingers and crab rangoon from Mandarin Cuisine in Needham, Massachusetts. I ordered early and was glad I did. Waits can be HOURS on NYE. There were lots of people there already and a sea of large, white take out bags, but I got in and out quickly.

Enjoy your New Year's Eve food wherever you get it. Eat Up New England wishes you a happy and healthy 2022.

ENJOY THE KING OF CLUBS LOBSTER SANDWICH AT THE BRASS COMPASS

The King of Clubs

Delicious clam chowder

The Brass Compass Cafe
Rockland, Maine

Maine is known for its fresh lobster. One of the finest lobster sandwiches in all of Maine can be found at The Brass Compass Cafe in Rockland.

The King of Clubs is so good that it was declared the winner on Throwdown with Bobby Flay.  You'll need your appetite for this one. This thick, double decker sandwich is packed with fresh lobster meat, lettuce, tomato and crispy bacon. It is so amazingly good. Somehow, I still had room to enjoy a cup of their clam chowder with this monster of a sandwich.

The Brass Compass is open for breakfast and lunch. There's a lot to choose from for both meals. For breakfast, there are a number of omelets, benedicts and specials like The Zoe, which is a grilled biscuit topped with haddock cakes, poached eggs and hollandaise. They also serve the ever-so delicious biscuits with sausage gravy. For lunch, there are a bunch of seafood platter and rolls, along with many specialty salads like the surf & turf Caesar and a salmon Caesar. They also serve burgers, quesadillas and wraps.

The Brass Compass is located in downtown Rockland where are plenty of shops to check out. They also have outdoor dining during the warmer months.
