The Versatile Delights of Fresh Lobster

Why North American Lobster is Best

An Everyday Extravagance

A friend in the auto industry told us it was funny about how people in North America viewed Mercedes. In North America, the Mercedes is thought to be top-of-the-line, special, for certain people, and for certain occasions. Practically everywhere else, it’s considered a workhorse.

When you’re leaving the airport in Berlin or Budapest, or even in Cairo or Casablanca, there’s a good chance that your taxi will be a Mercedes. It’s the fact that Mercedes is well made and serviceable that defines its role in most of the world, not that it is exclusive.

Lobster has a similar image. Most folks feel lobster is a clear signal that something special is going on. Yet there are regions and cities and families that consider lobster well within reach of a regular day. At Boston Sword & Tuna we aim to be your source for the best online fresh lobster delivery, so you don’t need an ocean nearby to enjoy your lobster the way some folks do, every week.

Welcomed into the Best Company

The rich, yet subtle taste of lobster sets it apart from other seafoods, particularly other shellfish. Its flavor would seem to go along with its upscale image. So, it might surprise many to learn that the governor of Plymouth Colony, in the early days of Massachusetts, apologized to newly arrived colonists that lobster was all they could share with them at the time. They were new to these curious-looking creatures, and lobsters were plentiful, to say the least.

The progress of railroads in the 1880s made it possible to serve the abundant coastal lobsters to passengers on their way west, and at those far destinations the rarity of lobsters made them a delicacy. By the 1920s, what was once an easy-to-get, nutritious, and tasty staple in coastal cities had taken on the desirable caché it enjoys today. So, at Boston Sword & Tuna, we make fresh lobster part of our shellfish and online fresh fish delivery.

The Essential Element of Freshness

Of course, one thing that contributed to the slow ascent of lobster to the finest tables might well have been that lobsters were not shipped live and fresh until recent history. This leap of progress is continued and improved by Boston Sword & Tuna with our gourmet fresh seafood home delivery online.

When you can rely on receiving a fresh, live, recent catch for your lobster dinner, it changes everything. Now lobster is at home anywhere, thanks to our best fresh seafood online.

As your trusted source of fresh fish and seafood, Boston Sword & Tuna uses five generations of relationships and experience to become the source you turn to with confidence.

Michael J. Scola

While earning his degree in business, Michael spent summers and winters working the floor at Boston Sword & Tuna and learning the seafood business from the ground up. As a fifth-generation fishmonger and handled different species, lumped sword and tuna, sorted through vats of haddock and cod, broke down salmon cases, graded the fish, and more. During this time, Mike was a veritable sea sponge, learning from the most-experienced seafood professionals in the game while acquiring the tools needed to be successful in this gritty industry.
