A Summer Meal Utopia

by Marisa Olsen


Keeping up with birthday tradition, I attempted to expand the celebration into an entire weekend. That being said a scrumptious dinner party was in order and we had the perfect main course: fresh live lobsters. For sides we fixed up a lemon butter (ok, we just melted butter and added lemon) for optimal crustacean dipping, a homemade caprese salad with chopped tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, grilled corn on the cob drenched in Narragansett beer, butter and pepper, garlic fries served with garlic mayo (a house specialty) and grilled Portuguese fisherman sweet rolls.

The ultimate, perfect summer meal, which was accompanied by a buttery chardonnay and a crisp sauvignon blanc. Delightful. Indulgent. Delectable.
