Maine is known for lobster, and the Kennebunk Inn and Academe Restaurant was made famous for its signature lobster pot pie that attracted Oprah (another of her Favorite Things), Food Network, and the Travel Channel to come taste this reinvented classic from chef/owner Brian O’Hea.
We got both a lobster pot pie and lobster lo mein to try the delicious sea creature in a a variety of forms, and we weren’t disappointed by either. Both took an already luxurious treat like lobster and turned it into a dining experience.
With a few simple steps, I was able to prepare and enjoy both dishes with ease, and the flaky crust of the pot pie (along with the creamy sauce, large lobster chunks, potatoes, and peas) made for some of the finest dining of my mostly blue-collar life. You may not have time to travel along the coasts of Maine, but you can certainly savor the tastes of its most famous meat thanks to this amazing dish.
