Smack Shack lobster boil a roiling success
|It's like Maine in Minnesota|
The food truck is parked for now, but the crew has moved into the 1029 Bar Wednesdays through Saturdays. Here's what we found over the weekend.
Though the operation has moved indoors, the Smack Shack is still serving food that ranges from its famous lobster rolls and lobster mac 'n' cheese to more common bar fare like wings and burgers, all dressed up in its gourmet-on-the-fly style, of course.
While butter is always welcome, the meat was so juicy and refreshingly sweet there wasn't really a need for it. The attentive and gregarious servers waltzed around the tables refilling wine glasses, offering water, and responding to every diner's whim. All of this was for just $20--a far cry from what lobster dinners can cost elsewhere. It was so much fun that the crew decided to do another boil the next night.
Word soon circulated that there might be more on the horizon. Follow the Smack Shack on Facebook or Twitter for more details.
