Friday June 1 is Lobster Night at Dragonfly

Lobster lovers mark your calendars, call your friends and make plans to attend Lobster Night at Dragonfly on Friday, June 1. Chef Billy McCullough is flying in live Maine lobster the day of the event, offering a fresh New England lobster dinner experience smack dab in the middle of Truckee.

The three course meal, priced at $42, includes New England Clam Chowder (a prize-winning recipe from the Boston Chowder Festival that has been served at The White House and in Buckingham Palace to the Queen of England!), one and a half pound Maine lobster with all the fixings, followed by a revitalizing fresh fruit sorbet. Diners can also order the lobster entree plate with all the fixings a la carte for $37.

Savor the thought of Maine lobster, with its naturally delicious sweet flavor and unique texture and color due to the clean cold water and rocky coastal habitat in which it is raised, then call to reserve your spot. Lobster Night fills up quickly and reservations are required by Tuesday, May 29. Call 530-587-0557 to reserve your lobster.

Dragonfly is located upstairs at 10118 Donner Pass Road, Downtown Truckee. For more information visit or and#8220;likeand#8221; them on Facebook.
