Lobster bake. What more is there to say? An end-of-summer work team dinner got kicked up a notch when we decided to make it a lobster bake. It’s pretty fun to get to take over your backyard with 40′ of lobster-primed tables, and it’s super simple. Bibs, mallots, wipes, and crackers are about all you need, so I kept to the basics and just added in some burlap votives and mason jars with garden-plucked white roses (it’s pretty awesome having endless blooms pop up on a weekly basis). And then there was the food. It. was. amazing. All thanks to the most classic of lobster stops, Sam’s Chowder House in Half Moon Bay.
