Hinoki and the Bird, Los Angeles: Lobster Roll

3 of 27

This four-bite sandwich is anything but your standard lobster roll. For starters, there’s the striking, jet-black bun, made from charcoal-enriched flour, which imparts a slightly earthy grittiness. Vietnamese green curry and garlic aioli punch up the flavors of the traditional mayonnaise dressing, while Thai basil leaves and flowers are a fresh (and pretty) finishing touch. hinokiandthebird.com
