Just because summer is over doesn't mean lobster specials are too. Many restaurants keep the deals flowing through the fall.
Several restaurants around town are getting in on the fun and offering more-affordable-than-usual lobster deals even as warmer weather subsides. All of Clyde's spots serve up a $16.95 lobster special all month, while The Riggsby is extending its popular Sunday night lobster dinner special.
Popular pairings include cole slaw to mashed potatoes to sweet corn, even as its growing season tapers off.
Here are several lobster specials Eater has spotted: send others to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: this article focuses on where to eat lobster itself, not dishes spiked with lobster.
