17) Barnacle Billy’s etc. (Ogunquit)

At Barnacle Billy's (and its sister restaurant, Barnacle Billy's etc.) you'll find plenty of New Yorkers around you talking about Brooklyn. Everyone's eating scallops and drinking white wine in cozy-clad bottles — it's an environment straight out of a '70s photo, with picture windows looking out on moored boats with names like Dough Boy. The lobster roll here is a grilled top-loader that’s filled with lobster, cooked well enough (not tough), and significantly dressed and dusted with paprika.
