Alive & Kicking Lobsters

269 Putnam Ave

Cambridge, MA 02139

This no-frills seafood market in Cambridge is known for its lobster sandwich (not roll), as well as its steamers, chowders, and daily fresh-caught fish. Instead of a split-top bun, Alive & Kicking's lobster salad -- a simple mixture dressed in light mayo, salt, and pepper -- is served between two pieces of Italian scali bread.
