Nothing says summer in the good old USA like a classic New England-style lobster roll. But those keen on sampling the delights of this seasonal staple won’t have to travel the globe to indulge as it is now on the menu at Le Bar Long in Paris’ five-star Le Royal Monceau Raffles from now until July 31.
The buttery high-end versions of the traditional American treat – elevated with French twists and made using artisanal ingredients – have been created in partnership with Parisian restaurant Homer Lobster. There are three versions of the flaky brioche bun, each filled with chef Moïse Sfez’s blue Breton lobster fillings: the Classic lobster roll (€38) is a mix of rich lobster, light citrus mayonnaise and chives, while the Avocado lobster roll (€40) is garnished with a spicy guacamole. The pièce de résistance, however, is the Truffle version (€42). The lobster rolls are complemented by homemade wasabi potato chips and a side salad, and served al fresco at lunch and dinner in the convivial surroundings of the hotel terrace.
