Lobster Pot Pie for Nov. 15 Second Tuesday Tasting at Bluewater Boathouse

Seafood restaurant on Coronado Island moves monthly tasting to encourage customers to vote on Nov. 8 Election Day

Lobster Pot Pie, the classically rich New England holiday delicacy, is the star attraction of the Second Tuesday Tasting in November at Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill across from the Hotel del Coronado on Glorietta Bay.

To encourage seafood fans to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8, Election Day, the restaurant has moved its monthly seafood and wine pairing back one week to Tuesday, Nov. 15.

Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill’s version of the Lobster Pot Pie was created by Jasper White, New England chef and author of Lobster at Home and includes Maine lobster claw and knuckle meat, cream, potato, red bell pepper, sweet onion and mushrooms with a flakey pastry topping.

The signature entrée is served with a choice of Bluewater’s housemade New England Chowder or Caesar Salad and paired with glasses of Chalk Hill Sonoma Chardonnay and Four Graces Willamette Valley Washington Pinot Noir.

“Lobster Pot Pie is a dish that every self-respecting New Englander enjoys at least once during the holidays,” said Bluewater Grill co-founder and co-owner Jimmy (Jim-U) Ulcickas, who is a Massachusetts native. “Our version from Jasper White updates the original with sustainably harvested Maine lobster and other ingredients for a West Coast audience yet the result is the same level of indulgence that locals have been loving for decades.”

The price of the Second Tuesday Tasting on Nov. 15 is $55 per person, which is $15 off the $70 value. Seatings begin at 6:30 pm, and reservations are strongly encouraged.

Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill is located at 1701 Strand Way in Coronado. For operating hours, menus and unique offerings, visit the restaurant’s website.
