USS Lobstitution Lobster Roll at Pauli's North End

Hardly willing to rest upon their laurels after recently deploying a hefty 14oz lobster roll sub, the crew at Pauli's North End has gone back to the culinary shipyard to rearm the fleet, christening what's being dubbed New England's absolute largest sandwich stuffed w/ crustacean meat, the U.S.S. Lobstitution. It weighs in at over 24oz, will set you back a cool $50, and is currently setting sail from Salem Street.

They start with a 24in top-loaded hoagie roll that's been halved, lightly buttered…

… and tossed on the grill.

You're now ogling a pound-and-a-half of fresh "prime knuckle & claw meat" from local seafood purveyor Globe Fish Company. Glorious, right?

Part One: The boarding begins.

And more...

Dave Baldwin

Another half-pound? Sure, why not?

Dave Baldwin

Maybe a little extra for good measure. Now, let's put this puppy back together.

Since they want to let the lobster meat speak for itself, seasoning/accoutrements are kept to a minimum: mayo and a little lemon.

Dave Baldwin

Indeed, it is all that and a bag of chips. Which you should also grab on your way out.

Dave Baldwin

It's enough to make even a decently-large regular lobster roll self-conscious.
