A lobster roll, near Fenway Park? It wasn’t what I was expecting at Sweet Caroline’s Restaurant and Bar.
This was the best lobster roll I’ve had. Now, I’m still a rookie to New England, but I’ve had a few lobster rolls over the last 2.5 years and this was delicious!
We stopped by for lunch the Saturday after the 4th of July when the Red Sox were on the road and it was pretty quiet in the area. It was a hot day and they had outdoor seating, but we had a nice big table inside.
The owner Sasha Nisenbaum came over and talked to us about Sweet Caroline’s and that they make most of their items in-house. He also said that they get fresh lobsters, steam and shuck them.
They also served us some of their new summer drinks, including:
“When Spring Became Summer” made with Bully Boy white whiskey, cucumber infused simple syrup, Sprite, lemon juice, and bitters. This was my favorite.
We also served “Where It Began” which was made with tequila, simple poblano syrup and had sugar, salt and Cajun seasoning on the rim. I thought it would be too spicy, but it wasn’t.
They also brought out a beer-cocktail, called Angel’s in the Outfield. It was made with Angel Envy bourbon from Kentucky (happy to support my home state), Harpoon IPA beer, and a few other things (which I missed hearing but I think lemon juice). It was heavy and I was surprised that I liked it. But I was so full by now and they said that it would pair well with DESSERT- oh my!
I attended Sweet Caroline’s with Blog & Tweet Boston and received a complimentary meal. All opinions are my own.
