Beachside Lobster rolls!
Calling all Lobster Roll lovers on the French Riviera! The Carlton Beach restaurant and bar has a special offering of four exclusive and tasty lobster rolls. The lobster roll, quintessential street food of the East Coast of the US, is an important part of the American culinary culture. For the first time on the French Riviera, you are able to taste this iconic seafood roll thank to a collaboration with Moïse Sfez, the founder of “Homer Lobster.” Homer has wowed customers in Paris and his recipe, ‘The Connecticut’ has even won the title of “Best Lobster Roll in the world”. Teaming up with the Carlton, they created special recipes available only at the Carlton.
A young and talented chef is behind “Homer Lobster”. At only 23 years old, Moïse Sfez shatters the idea of a traditional lobster roll to reinvent new ways. He discovered this legendary sandwich seven years ago when on holiday in New York. Since then, this street food lover learned from the very best chefs in the world, working in prestigious establishments in Paris and London. He then decided to take a leap of faith and start his own business blending American culture with French fine-dining and quality products; such as fresh and French blue lobsters and delicious handmade brioche bread specifically baked for the occasion.
Indeed, from this collaboration between “Homer Lobster” and the legendary hotel’s chef, Laurent Bunel, a “Carlton Signature” recipe was born. Inspired by the traditional American recipe with a little something more to it, accompanied by a mayonnaise with orange and sweet pepper ketchup. This very special lobster roll is served with homemade wasabi potato chips and a mesclun salad. All food lovers will highly appreciate this blend between American and French culture, all condensed in one sandwich. Their menu also offers three other lobster rolls, including The Connecticut, which has fresh-grated lime and a ‘secret blend’ of herbs This collaboration runs from June 7th until August 31st to dine in or take away, at the Carlton Beach Club or the Carlton Bar. It really is delicious, try not to miss this!
