19 picks for best summertime food in New England

In busy downtown Dock Square in Kennebunkport, you’ll find The Clam Shack. Tiny, no-frills, and strictly takeout, the eatery won the fan-favorite award at New York City’s 2012 Lobster Roll Rumble, hosted by e-newsletter Tasting Table, besting sandwiches from Boston, New York City, and California. No doubt it was the bakery-fresh, grilled hamburger bun (it’s specially made at Reilly’s in Biddeford) holding nearly whole sections of cold tail and claw meat from lobster harvested that morning. Choose butter or mayo or both.
