The New Hampshire coastline is famously short, but despite its lack of miles it manages to have everything a good seacoast needs: picture-perfect water views, beautiful beaches, small towns, and at least one great little city for culture, shopping, and fine dining. In New Hampshire, that city is Portsmouth, and while it boasts some of the most talked-about eateries in the state, it’s also the ideal spot for enjoying a simple, fresh New England lobster roll. Just steps from the hustle and bustle of Market Square and the terrific Strawbery Banke Museum, you’ll find my favorite Portsmouth lobster roll at Sanders Fish Market.
Featured in our Where to Find the Best New England Lobster Roll in Winterroundup for its year-round fresh lobster roll (or lobster sandwich, if you’re a stickler about lobster rolls being served only on New England hot dog buns), Sanders also nabbed a spot on our list of the 10 Best Seafood Markets in New Englandfor its daily fresh catch, including fish, shellfish, scallops, shrimp, lobster, crab, and seasonal items such as bluefish, shad roe, and smelts.
But let’s get back to the lobster roll, shall we? Here’s a look at my most recent lunch visit to Sanders Fish Market.
