Rare Calico Lobster Found in Boston Restaurant
May 11, 2012
New York Daily News: An extremely rare lobster was saved Monday [May 7] by an alert employee at a Massachusetts restaurant.
The unusually colored “calico” lobster is marked by bright orange and yellow spots. But the extraordinary find could have easily ended up in someone’s belly at Jasper White’s Summer Shack restaurant in Cambridge.
“We happened to be cleaning the tank and I happened to be there,” White told the Boston Globe. “One of my guys said, ‘Chef, look at this lobster,’ and from across the room I knew it was special.”
