New England Lobster Bliss In Denver

I recently had a chance to experience a rare bit of New England seafood bliss in this area, trying out the relatively new food truck called Lobster Bliss in Denver. Although only established I think in May, I've already seen them referred to as one of the best in the country, I forget if by Eater or by Zagat, and it has been on my radar ever since. They fly in live lobsters then store them in a special tank until their time comes. They offer both the more common cold lobster roll and the harder to find hot Connecticut-style one, and these are true lobster rolls, just big chunks of lobster, not the lobster salad rolls that sometimes give you more celery than anything else. And they sell for just $16 each, a steal considering they can be nearly twice that on the East Coast, even for ones filled with the salad version. It was about the freshest, most wonderful lobster roll I've ever had, including comparing with ones eaten on Block Island or Nantucket.

Check their website for locations and hours, but the short version is lunch at Civic Center Eats on Tuesdays, longer hours Saturdays at the Big Wonderful. We tried them at the Big Wonderful, which also amazed this New Englander with the added attraction of a bar area carrying craft beers from Cisco Brewery on Nantucket. This is a rare find indeed in the West!
