So much has been written about Neptune Oysters Maine lobster roll, its like trying to write about the Beatles or Marilyn Monroe or Fenway Park. The things an icon. (Sarah Jessica Parker was recently inside seeing what all the fuss was about.) If youve never had one from this North End staple, youre missing what may be the citys best version available hot with butter or cold with mayonnaise on a toasted roll. There are no other ingredients to distract you, aside from a pile of salty fries. D.F.
