Summer Shack Cambridge
Where we've featured it
Movie Pairing: Jaws (Amazon)
“What we need in movies right now is pure escapism, a breezy two hours spent in a cinematic universe that doesn’t constantly make us anxious about our daily existence. That’s why we recommend Jaws. This movie, about an inhuman killing machine that terrorizes a small New England island in part because local politicians prioritize the economy over the safety and well-being of the general population, has absolutely no relevance today… right? Pair it with some classic New England seafood from Summer Shack and spend the night thinking of better times.” - DS
We’re not sure what it takes to be nominated for a “Best New Restaurant” award on the national level - as Summer Shack was in 2000 - but serving a great lobster roll must be a baseline requirement. The one at Summer Shack comes with cucumber, something we didn’t think we needed, but actually, really enjoy - just like bourbon in our Negronis. Visit their website to place a takeout order. Delivery is also available on Uber Eats.
The quintessential New England “big night in” has to include lobsters, so order pan-roasted ones with bourbon and chives. While you’re at it, throw in some fried chicken as well, and start yelling “BAWSTON” to your neighbor across the street.
Summer Shack Cambridge has reopened for takeout and delivery on a variety of different platforms, which means you can once again have 3 lb lobsters with bourbon and chives for dinner. Orders over $30 also come with a free cup of chowder.
