Meredith Herzing - October 2015


"A special occasion means family and friends, and, of course, good food. At the heart of these gatherings is a dish that's big enough to feed everybody that's still extraordinary. I thought it would be great to offer the stuffed lobster, a centerpiece fit for a celebration and a dish that could make a special moment truly memorable." -Eric Houseknecht, executive chef Thames Street Oyster House
