Former Isle au Haut resident takes top prize in NYC lobster roll contest

Written by

STATEWIDE - Maine is known by many as the lobster capital of the world.

It should then come as no surprise that a woman from Maine has taken home the top prize in a lobster roll competition held in New York City.


Diana Santospago is from Isle au Haut. She has since created a successful food truck business in Arizona, where she sells fresh Maine lobster.


Santospago recently competed against 20 teams in the Lobster Roll Rumble in New York, where attendees paid $175 dollars to taste the entries.


Santospago took home the coveted Golden Claw Award for having the best lobster roll.


She also joined Governor Paul LePage to celebrate.
