Try This Front Room Shrimp Roll, Because It May Not Be Around Forever

Categories: Eat This

Watch out lobster roll.
Lobster rolls are inexplicably all over this town, even if we have to pay a claw and a leg to get one.

Shrimp rolls make more sense. The Gulf of Mexico has plenty of shrimp, and not only are the shipping costs lower, the shellfish are more affordable.

If you're inclined, The Front Room in Park Cities has a great version on their menu. Dubbed the "shrimp top loader" it packs perfectly cooked, diced shrimp into a buttery bun, with radishes shaved thin and leaves of celery that mirror the crunchy chunks in the salad. It's a great sandwich, and at $16 with a tower of house-fried potato chips, it's a touch cheaper than many of the lobster rolls served around town.

The roll might not be around forever, though. The Front Room is due for a renovation, but it won't start until at least November as design plans continue to evolve. There's a chance the shrimp roll could make a return after chef Tim Bevins releases his new menu, but it's not promised. If you want one, you should probably place your order soon.

A "must try" is a louis kemp crab or lobster delights roll.  Part of the Trident Seafoods family of brands.  These are good not only for lunch, but dinner too.

Go to Rex's or Sea Breeze for good lobster rolls.

^Agreed.  Why would you pay basically the same price for a lobster roll with shrimp?  When I saw the headline I thought it was a great idea but I expected it to be under $10.

This is SPAM, I did not write this.  It is coming from something called My Voice Nation, I have never heard of them.
