The arrival of August means it’s time for lobster at Gertrude’s!


                            John Shields at Gertrude’s


This year you can get your lobster as the “New England Meal” which includes a 1 1/4 pound Maine lobster, baked potato, coleslaw, and Maryland sweet white corn on the cob.

Or as the “Maryland-style Meal”—Shields says, this version is “gussied up a bit” because the lobster is stuffed with Maryland crab imperial.

John Shields’ award-winning restaurant, Gertrude’s is located just off the sculpture garden at the Baltimore Museum of Art.

A word to the wise, reservations are essential.
