Pop-up Anchor Light, which operates out of the Stock Rittenhouse kitchen, does lobster rolls really well for a place that isn’t in Maine or Cape Cod. They’re $19 each, but if you’re really craving a solid takeout lobster roll, this is your spot. They do three styles - Connecticut, Maine, and New England - and if you want more than one they also have a four-pack with two lobster rolls of your choice, a shrimp roll, and a crab roll. Add a watermelon salad to really pretend you’re on a yacht off Martha’s Vineyard, and not stuck in a 600-square-foot apartment with a roommate who doesn’t use headphones for their Zoom calls.
