The Best Lobster Roll In Cape Cod
While some people have cold feelings towards change, I thrive on it. I love the challenge of change, and the tingling feeling of the unexpected. I love trying out new things, even if sometimes my curiosity isn't rewarded. What does this love of the unknown means on a less existential note? I rarely visit the same restaurant twice. In a city like New York where novelty is never-ending, it's easy to live this way. Sure, I have my favorites, my go-to takeout spots and coffee shops, but I also get hyper when thinking about the newest restaurant, cocktail bar, boutique workout. I get more fulfillment out of discovering something new, than out of the comfort of the known. What about you? Do you feel energized by change?
When I'm traveling, I find it even more important to diversify where I'm going and what I'm eating so that I can squeeze the most out of my trip. Sometimes this is tiring, and I need to remind myself to just enjoy the moment, but usually it is invigorating.I blame this trait on NYC; growing up here basically guarantees you have a short attention span.
Sometimes though, you stumble upon something so delicious and so perfect in it's simplicity that you don't want to risk letting go of that. I get it...why try something else when it won't be as good? This is exactly how Brandon and I felt when we discovered Sesuit Harbor Cafe on Cape Cod last week. We went for the lobster rolls on day one, and ended up coming back for lunch 3 days in a row! We didn't grow tired of the toasted, buttery bread, the shatteringly crispy fries, or the sweet and creamy lobster hunks sitting in our basket. Oh no. We grew to love the slanted tables, the infinite amount of Heinz ketchup bottles, the lemonade to wash it all down. There was nothing fancy about it, nothing new; no spicy mayos or pickled celery. Just bread + lobster + mayo + celery. That's it. And with it's austerity we fell in love.
Sitting back in NYC now and writing this post, my mouth is salivating thinking about all the luscious New England seafood we ate, the windy beach breeze, the sense of calm that the Cape brought us. I can't believe summer flew by so quickly, and that we are entering a new season already. Change man.... she always finds a way to peak her head out at us right when we least expect it. Or is it he?
