Chef Michael Cimarusti is most well-known for his Michelin-starred restaurant Providence, but it’s his casual seafood shack Connie & Ted’s that we keep coming back to. The creamy New England-style clam chowder and the fish and chips are really good, but the lobster roll is the main event. You’re given the choice to have it served hot and buttered, or cold with mayonnaise – we’ve tried both and highly recommend choosing butter, which melts delightfully into the house-made brioche bun. This is the best lobster roll we’ve ever had! Save room for the amazing blondie brownie, which is topped with house-made vanilla ice cream and sea salt caramel – it’s one of our favorite desserts in L.A.
