Are you looking for a lobster roll, the New England specialty of Maine lobster heaped on a bun? Aren’t we all?

My story on the lobster roll, which appeared in Wednesday’s Food & Wine section, named three area restaurants that serve the regional sandwich — Ella Dining Room & Bar and Matteo’s Bistro in Sacramento, and the New Haven Pub & Grill in foothills Pollock Pines.

Add Rudy’s Hideaway to the list, the venerable seafood house that sells its lobster roll for $19, describing it as: “Over a quarter-pound of Maine lobster meat sauteed with a pinch of celery and served on a soft toasted roll with natural-cut fries. Drawn butter and mayonnaise on the side.”

The lobster roll is also served out of Rudy’s roaming food truck, the Cruzin’ Crustacean, which has a route of upcoming stops here.
