NEW TWIST ON LOBSTER: Theres a new way to
enjoy lobster in Huntington, and it can be found at Twisted
Vine Cocktails & Cuisine (24 Clinton Ave., Huntington
631-549-5555 www.twistedvinecuisine.com). The Lobster BLT
Sliders ($12) remind us of a lobster roll, but the lobster
is served on two mini brioche sandwich buns instead of on
a top-loading bun. Twisted Vine gives its own take on the
classic and adds bacon pieces, heirloom tomatoes, and organic
mesclun greens. Its a little something different for
a tiny taste of New England.
