It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Lobster!

I started my day off with a trip to see the lovely 'Mane Wrangler' (also known as my hair stylist, K) and then, since we were already downtown, Mr. R&R and I had lunch at the Milwaukee Public Market.  The Public Market is vaguely reminiscent of Seattle's famous Pike Place Market - although it doesn't even come close to Pike Place's diversity and charm.

 One of my favorite things to eat at Pike Place is the crab cups and ceviche cups.  They're super cheap and absolutely delicious.

It turns out that the Milwaukee Public Market has a killer bargain of it's own...lobster dinners for $13.95 at the St. Paul Fish Company!

We each started out with a cup of clam chowder.   Mr. R&R and I agreed that it was the best chowder either of us have had in a long time.  It was apparent that there was nothing 'canned' or 'commercial' about it.

Then it was time for the main event: Lobster Dinner for him and a Lobster Roll for me.

According to Mr. R&R, the lobster was delicious and pretty much melted in his mouth.  My lobster roll was also really good - rich and creamy with big pieces of lobster and just enough spice to take the edge off the richness -  tucked inside a folded slice of grilled bread. 

By the time we finished our lunch we were both ready to lapse into a food coma, but we stopped at C. Adam's Bakery  and picked up a couple of huge cookies for later (chocolate chunk for him, peanut butter chocolate chunk for me) and spent the freezing cold walk back to the car plotting what other Market vendors we'd like to visit  in the future.

Long story short (too late), if you're ever in Milwaukee: A) Let me know and B) Make sure to stop by the Milwaukee Public Market for a bite to eat.  Even if fish isn't your thing, I think there's something there for everyone!
