New England: Experience the Best Seafood in the States2 May, 2015
New England is famous for many types of food but Maine is renowned for its lobster and other seafood. A New England boiled lobster is delicious served with melted butter; a cracking tool and a narrow fork are provided to deal with the mechanics of eating one. A classic lobster dinner will usually include clams and is served with corn on the cob. The restaurant shacks on the shore have family seating and with their views of the ocean are recognized as being the best places to enjoy the local seafood.
