East, West and Gulf coasts meet at this self-styled New England lobster and chowder shack on lower Greenville. That's a lot of directions under one roof. However, a compass is unnecessary. Diners simply locate the red neon lobster and blue neon bowl of chowder capped by a red awning.

The New England-style seafood shack has been around for a while, but they're not afraid to take chances--chances like dumping every kind of shellfish they can think of on some rice and calling it paella. Two small lobster tails, several scallops, some shrimp, mussels and clams. Geez. This is a tour of New England, the equivalent of an all-you-can-eat seafood feast for about $20. There's nothing Spanish about it, but who really cares? If it's on the menu and you think you're up to the... More »
