TJ’s Seafood Market has conjured up the best lobster the city has ever witnessed. Huge words, right? Allow for explanation. The roll is custom, soft, eggy and buttery. TJ’s griddles the bun on the outside to golden and crispy perfection. Then the lobster is added. A whole one and a half pound deconstructed lobster. This leaves the discussion of which parts are being used, because it’s the whole thing. Add to the roll is a tantalizing lemon thyme compound butter.

As we continue to celebrate National Lobster Day, and I believe this happens a few times a year to our joy, our sites were set on one of the best bargains to reach our belly in years.

For ten years, Sea Breeze Fish Market & Grill has been one of the region’s top destinations for fresh fish and seafood.

I have seen six of Wes Anderson’s eight films, so I would say that I’m a fan (and now need to go back and see the remaining two).

This theme is consistently delivered everywhere, even on the menu which feels like it could have been torn from TR’s personal diary. Continue reading
Lobster Rolls are a source of great local pride for many New Englanders. And when Sea Breeze Fish Market & Grill opened nearly ten years ago, it was their Maine-inspired New England Lobster Roll that helped put the location on the culinary map in North Texas. Continue reading

A heap of Maine lobster on a buttery bun with a side of Caesar salad rocks any time of year, and nobody does it better than seafood guru Jon Alexis at TJ’s Seafood Market. This is the petite size. I add mayo, which Jon says is not the way the original Connecticut lobster roll was made when it was invented near the turn of the last century.
By the time I was growing up in the Nutmeg State, the cold version with mayo and celery had become more popular than the original. Thanks to Jon, I am able to pass along to you the real story. Who else tells you these things?
