The Little Giant Lobster Roll is designed to impress both the lobster roll traditionalists and show-me-something-new foodie friends, and they literally fly off the menu all year long. The only way to start: fresh Maine tail, claw, and knuckle lobster meat. Prepping couldn’t be easier: warm the lobster in lobster stock-infused butter and toss it all in perfectly seasoned housemade Calabrian chili aioli. Then tuck it into a gorgeous brioche bun, baked especially for Little Giant by Portland’s own Norimoto Bakery.
Little Giant is a neighborhood restaurant that opened in 2017 in Portland, Maine’s West End neighborhood. At Little Giant, Executive Chef Neil Ross has built relationships with some of the region’s top farmers and producers, and he’s using these fresh, local ingredients to create some of Portland’s most beloved farm-to-table fare.
