The Nauti Lobstah: A Seafood Gem With New England Flair In Apopka

When you first hear the moniker “The Nauti Lobstah,” you cannot help but envision a dedication to superior New England seafood. This establishment nestled in Apopka delivers an authentic dose of Yankee culinary expertise to the local seafood scene. Headed by Chef Mike Rumplik, a native New Englander with a classical culinary education and an impressive 15-year stint as the executive chef at the Rosen Centre Hotel, The Nauti Lobstah brings a wealth of culinary credentials to the table. Chef Rumplik’s culinary journey also includes prior roles at renowned establishments such as the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, the Peabody Orlando, and the Peabody Memphis.

While The Nauti Lobstah’s menu features an awesome selection of seafood delicacies, the undoubted stars of the show are the shellfish offerings. An excellent starting point for your seafood adventure is the raw East Coast oysters served on the half shell. The Virginia Blue Point oysters impress with their generous size, sweetness, and, most importantly, their remarkable freshness. Tradition is honored with their accompaniments: cocktail sauce, horseradish, lemon wedges, and saltines. For those who prefer cooked options, fried or casino-style preparations are also available.

The Nauti Lobstah: The Realm Of New England Cuisine

In the world of New England cuisine, few meals hold as much iconic status as clam chowder. Chef Rumplik’s signature chowder elevates this classic comfort dish to extraordinary heights. It boasts an impeccable symmetry of seasonings, herbs, and cream, resulting in a full-bodied and flavorful experience.

Another highlight from the shellfish section is the steamed littleneck clams. These clams are prepared in a deluxe, buttery white-wine broth infused with garlic, basil, and vibrant tomato chunks. Served with grilled focaccia slices for dipping, this appetizer is a delightful marriage of flavors and textures.

It wouldn’t be right if The Nauti Lobstah didn’t serve lobster. Of course, they do! A wide selection of lobster options are available, ranging from pristine tails to substantial stuffed three-pound specimens. Particularly, The Nauti Lobstah offers enticing whole lobster specials throughout the week. These specials feature a meticulously prepared one-pound boiled Maine lobster, served with drawn butter and lemon wedges. Pairing it with their flavorful yet not overly creamy spinach side creates a harmonious combination that delights the palate.

They’ve Also Gotten A Face Lift

While The Nauti Lobstah’s dining area has received a modern update, the rustic maritime theme remains integral to its ambiance. However, it’s not just the atmosphere but also the exceptional menu that sets The Nauti Lobstah apart. This establishment has undergone a significant transformation from its previous seafood-centric identity, offering a fresh regional perspective, elevated culinary artistry, and remarkable hospitality. The Nauti Lobstah serves as a culinary storm, combining quality and comfort to bring a taste of New England to seafood enthusiasts in Apopka.
