Spring Break
May 11th, 2022 by Alex

Hi! I just came back from an eventful spring break… we toured colleges in DC, Virginia and North Carolina then ended up in Florida for a relaxing getaway 🙂 Along the way, we found some amazing restaurants and I wanted to post about some of them!

First off is Luke’s Lobster which is a quick lunch place that we went to in DC (but they have a few in Manhattan). They, believe it or not, serve lobster but more specifically lobster rolls (and some other sides). The rolls were amazing with large portions of fresh lobster that weren’t overpowered by too much mayo, served on fresh bread. As good as the food was what really stood out to me about Luke’s Lobster was their environmental consciousness. They use sustainable lobster fishing to take care of oceans and preserve natural resources. Luke’s is also a certified B corporation meaning they work to achieve social and environmental good, not just profit.

Not only was the lobster delicious, but it was also great to eat at a restaurant that practices “traceable, sustainable” seafood. Luke’s buys directly from fishermen in Maine who they know are working to protect our oceans.

Also, I hadn’t heard of certified B corporations until I saw it on Luke’s menu and investigated. This certification is an international certification that verifies that companies meet the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. When I read Luke’s mission statement (available here), I realized I needed to look out for more restaurants like them.

Besides Luke’s, we had several other great meals…

Rocco’s Tacos serves amazing Mexican food with fresh ingredients and a fun environment. We went to the one in Delray Beach along Atlantic ave and ordered shrimp, chicken, and chorizo tacos, chips & guac, and margaritas (for mom). The restaurant gives an exciting experience with wacky decorations and guacamole prepared in front of you. The food was great, the highlight being the guac! 

Boston’s on the Beach is a beachside restaurant good for lunch or a quick dinner. We got Bibb Lettuce Wraps with marinated chicken and carrots, Ahi Tuna Poke, and The “Power” Bowl with greens, quinoa, and chickpeas.
