Meet Ben Sargent, a Boston born and bred die-hard traditionalist when it comes to seafood.

Ben's got a bone...actually, make that cartilage to pick with New York City's lobster rolls, claiming that most New Yorkers don't know what a 'real' lobster roll is, like the kind he grew up on eating dockside in Cape Cod and Boston.

So, aiming to educate, he started a questionably legal underground lobster pound out of his basement apartment in Brooklyn, welcoming friends, strangers and die-hard lobster roll aficionados to get a true taste of what "God had a hand in creating"...the true version of the Northeast lobster roll. It's a roll he believes in and the start of a lobster roll and chowder shack he hopes to build in the near future.

Thanks for watching food. curated.
