5 Fun Facts About Lobster

September 25th marks National Lobster Day, so you bet we are celebrating big! In honor of one of our favorite crustaceans, today we wanted to share some fun facts (courtesy of Mental Floss) about this beloved seafood gem.

  1. The largest lobster recorded was caught near Nova Scotia in 1977, weighing in at a whopping 44 pounds! Our menus include 1.25 lb. lobsters, but we’d be happy to source bigger ones for you if needed. 
  1. It’s time to heat things up. Did you know the warmer the water, the faster lobsters grow? 
  1. Even though Phoebe on Friends was adamant that “Lobsters mate for life,” that’s not always true. In fact, they are not monogamous after all. 
  1. We love eating lobster, but what do lobsters eat? Lobsters feed off of a variety of ocean creatures — including clams, mussels, crabs and even other lobsters. 
  1. Lobsters walk forward, but if they need to quickly escape, they push themselves backward by pumping their tails! 

That’s a wrap! Learn more about our Lobster options and Catered Clambakes here

We had B & M cater our daughter's wedding this past weekend.

I was so pleased with the service, presentation and the food was spectacular.

The appetizers were hot and delicious.

The food was as good as the tasting that we attended at the beginning of the year. 

It was also nice and hot and there was plenty!!

Our family and friends loved the food and had a great time. 

The staff from the office to the servers are fantastic and so willing to help you in any way!!

Thanks, B & M for helping to make my daughter and son-in-law's day perfect!!

I would highly recommend them for your next event!

wedding catering review

"I had B&M cater my wedding this past weekend. We are still getting raves from guests about it! Since our initial emails, tastings, final decision makings, and the big day, B&M were incredibly professional, patient, and just perfect. They happily answered all of my questions, no matter how silly.

I even had many picky guests and dietary restrictions and they were so gracious and helpful to accommodate everyone.

On the day of, they were so helpful (even with setting up things for the wedding that weren't their responsibility). They really showed just how much they care for their clients.

They actively made sure my husband and I were eating and having a great time. They even brought our food to us so we wouldn't miss out. You have no idea how many times I've heard friends who said that they barely ate at their wedding. B&M made sure we were taken care of.

Now for the food. It was absolutely delicious. Everyone was overwhelmingly satisfied. Most of our guests would stop me just to tell me how great the food was, and it really was. The crew even packed up all the leftovers and personally spoke to me about what was there, where it was, etc.

They were just really the best. I couldn't have asked for more.

They went above and beyond."
