The Press Box: Old Port Lobster Shack
There’s a simple reason the lobster at Old Port Lobster Shack tastes like it came straight from Maine: it did. Owner and New England–native Russell Deutsch has his star crustaceans flown in from Portland, Maine, ensuring that every lobster roll and steamed special has that authentic Atlantic flavor. Read on to discover more reasons to love this casual eatery:
“...the lobster roll is just as good here as it was [in Maine]. The sweet, briny meat is complemented by a light dressing of mayonnaise, lemon juice, chives, salt and pepper. And the roll (known as a New England top-loading bun) is soft, slightly sweet and grilled to lend a satisfying crunch.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“The nautical décor proudly showcases all things Maine—we're talking lobster traps, buoys, a spinning lighthouse, Portland Seadogs flags, maps and paintings of fishermen.” – MetroActive.com
“Behind [the register] you can see some of the draft beers from both the east and west coasts you can try: Sea Dog, Allagash, Old Thumper, Anchor Steam, Dead Guy, and Widmer Brothers.” – Bay Area Bites
Four Things about La Viga Restaurant
Although this casual spot is tucked away between the city’s downtown and Industrial areas, it has a lot to offer in the way of ultra-fresh, beautiful, and authentic Mexican cuisine. Read on to learn more about La Viga Restaurant:
It was featured as a pick on the 2015 Michelin Guide. The Michelin inspector notes that the restaurant is revered for its camarones picantes, a sizable mound of al dente fideos studded with plump prawns bathed in a spicy tomato sauce.
Chef Manuel Martinez’s menu is inspired by his childhood in Mexico. Since he grew up eating homemade dishes and fresh seafood, that’s what he brings to the table at La Viga. “I believe by using sustainable ingredients, it will not only support local people, but it will also show others that a Mexican diet is more than high carbs and protein,” he says.
**La Viga is named after Mexico City’s most colorful and largest seafood market. ** That means it should be no surprise that seafood is its specialty. Diner can even have their fish cooked to order.
Home-cooked Mexican cuisine has never looked better. Traditional flavors get elegant, upscale plating where sauces are drizzled and dotted over plates and tacos are mounded with bright salsas on perfectly round tortillas.
