The Town Tasted Good Thursday Night


The Fifth Annual Taste of the Town on Thursday tickled tastebuds and tempted shoppers as they strolled through downtown, stopping in stores to sample some food (even in stores that don’t sell food) and get a checkoff on their special map to get a chance for a prize.

A “Lobster Off” from 5 to 6 p.m., which emcee Chef Plum called a “Lobster Roll Off” had three judges from town pick which food establishment in town made the choicest lobster roll, with five nominees to choose from. The overall winner: Nube Siguenza of Cava restaurant.

These other contestants also won prizes:

  • Sandy Baldanza of Baldanza’s Cafe: “Best Looking Lobster Roll”
  • Scott Kaluczky, co-owner of Silvermine Market (which plans to offer pizza, starting in September): “Meatiest Lobster Roll”
  • Justin Sullivan, a chef from Fjord Fish Market: “Most Classic Lobster Roll”
  • Fish Tales: “Best Balance of Flavors”

The week before the Stroll, Walter Stewart’s Market sold “pre-packaged” bags to donate for $15 and $25 each (they had a retail value of $25 and $40, respectively, and were made available thanks to the local market’s generosity). “Strollers” who spent more than $200 in stores on the evening of the event had a chance to win prizes, including a Grand Prize from Le Boudoir Salon on Main Street.
