Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

With Scott Reitz's last week's cover story blockbuster on Taylorgate and D.C. bread culture, it may have been easy to look over Melissa McCart's Young & Hungry column on winter lobster.

If you eat a lobster roll indoors, does it taste better? I’m not entirely sure, but this is something I’m trying to figure out. It’s an idea that runs against proper lobster-roll consumption conventions.
