Sitting outside as the sun sets near the waterfront with a glass of Rosé and savory seafood sounds like the perfect summer night. With summertime rolling around the corner, everyone is searching for the hot seafood spots around the city. June is national seafood month and June 14th was national lobster day, so we decided to kick off a hunt for the best lobster rolls in Boston. We weren’t able to go to every place on the list, but here is what we found…
