Seafood Newburg in the Boston area?

I haven't been for a while, but I ordered Lobster Newburg many times when I lived closer to Boston and Durgin Park. If they still use the same recipe and have kept up the quality, it is perfect. When I had it, it was lobster in not too much sauce. Definitely different from the heavy creamy sauce with chunks of lobster floating in it, as you might expect. There was no more sauce then if you dipped the lobster in butter i.e more lobster than sauce. I think they leave the cream out of their recipe. The sauce was more or less transparent, like having a lobster picked out for you and not having to dip it in anything. When I had it, there was a more than ample amount for a medium sized appetite, probably about what you would expect to get from a hard-shell 1-1/2 pound lobster, and it was about the same price. This is an edit about an hour after the original post: Durgin Park was purchased by Arkrestaurants in 2007. I just looked at the menu. Lobster Newburg is no longer there, at least in the official on-line version. There are a number of on-line menu's still out there that do list it, but it's not in the official on. Also, to NYA Joe, market price has always been SOP for many restaurants purportedly due to frequent and sudden change of seafood prices so that they don't need to change the printed menu. Just ask how much before you order. Some restaurants put the price up on a blackboard for the market price items so watch on the way in.
