[ P O RT L A N D, M A I N E ] In Portland, Maine, visitors seek out the best and most buttery lobster rolls. Whether it's a food truck or a high-end restaurant, every establish- ment has its own take on the Maine staple, which comes "in so many different varieties now," said Elissa English, director of sales and mar- keting for the Greater Portland Convention and Visitors Bureau. The three most common are rolls with either plain lobster meat or served with drawn butter or mayonnaise, but lobster rolls are now "pop- ping up in various ethnic foods." The Eventide Oyster Co. serves it on a Chinese steamed bun with brown butter vinaigrette. Zapoteca dishes up lobster in rolls as well as tacos, ceviche and guacamole. The Bite Into Maine food truck is a favorite that recently expanded into catering. It will reopen in April for the 2017 season. The Linda Kate Lobster and Seafood Co. is a new catering outfit that gets its lobsters from Casco Bay fishermen and serves them at lobster bakes. The Casco Bay Lines ferry service created a package that allows passen- gers to take the ferry to Peaks Island, where they enjoy a lobster bake din- ner at a covered waterfront pavilion that offers panoramic views of the sunset over the bay. During a Lucky Catch cruise, the captain shows small groups how to haul in lobster traps and measure lobsters. If it meets regulations, guests can buy it and take it to the Portland Lobster Co., which will steam it, and "you can sit there and eat it on the dock," English said. www.visitportland.com By Chris Lawrence Portland Lobster Co.
