Stuffed Lobster is the “Maine” Attraction throughout November at Bluewater Boathouse

Seafood lovers are encouraged to stuff the lobster and not the bird for this iconic Boston-themed holiday celebration in November

By popular demand, Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill is reprising its famous New England-inspired holiday offering and advice to seafood lovers looking for something unique this time of year: Stuff the Lobster Instead of the Bird!

Getting an early start on the season, Bluewater will serve a signature, sustainably harvested version of Holiday Baked Stuffed Maine Lobster throughout November.

Stuffed Maine Lobster is a classic family feast that originated in Boston-area seafood restaurants and has since become a popular New England holiday tradition.

The festivities kick-off with a 5:30pm tasting event on Nov. 12 featuring a whole Maine lobster stuffed with a special shrimp and buttery panko-crumb stuffing and served with choice of New England or Manhattan Clam Chowder, two sides, unlimited fresh sourdough bread and a Bluewater bib for just $45. Paired with the feast will be two hand-picked Sauvignon Blancs, Oyster Bay from New Zealand, and a St. Supery from Napa Valley.

The monthly tasting events, hosted every second Tuesday at Bluewater Boathouse, feature seasonal seafood specialties paired with hand-selected wines or specialty draught beers. The events have become a popular monthly diversion for neighborhood seafood aficionados and the restaurant’s local fan base.

Holiday revelers unable to attend the special Nov. 12 celebration can order the Holiday Baked Stuffed Main Lobster off the menu throughout November for $45 and pair it with wines on the bar menu at a pre-pour cost.

As with all fresh seafood and shellfish, Maine lobsters are subject to availability.

“In keeping with our mission to practice 100% responsible harvesting and purchasing, a menu offering involving sustainable Maine lobster is a natural,” explained Bluewater Grill co-founder Jimmy Ulcickas. “The Maine lobster industry is the model of a well-managed fishery — ensuring that both lobster populations and the environment are protected for generations to come.  Maine harvesters were environmentally conscious and ‘eco-friendly’ long before it was fashionable. They harvest their lobsters the same careful way they have for over 125 years — by hand, one trap at a time — thus protecting lobster quality and the marine environment.”
