Interesting nachos around Boston
Lobster/Crab Nachos$10, The Fat Cat
24 Chestnut St., Quincy
Topped with: Crab, lobster, Parmesan, cheddar, corn and tomato salsa, sour cream, and avocado
"I didn't want to just do standard nachos," chef Tom Coleman says. "I love using seafood, so this was a natural fit."
My take: Adding lobster to a dish is a license to jack up the price. The Fat Cat hasn't. Lobster has become a standard macaroni and cheese mix-in; it was only a matter of time before it turned up in other unlikely places. There are chunks of the crustacean (spotted: an entire claw) in this big plate of crispy nachos, and the spicy roasted corn and tomato salsa gives the dish a nice kick.
