If you can’t get to the East Coast this summer, you can attempt to fake it with a lobster festival that is happening through July 30 at King’s Fish House at The Commons in Calabasas. According to the menu, the catch comes from the area between the Georges Bank and the Gulf of Maine. On tap are whole, hard-shell, steamed lobsters from 1¼ pound to 3 pounds ($27.25 to $48.50). Add a New England clambake with mussels, clams, red potatoes and corn on the cob for $5.95. Other selections include Maine lobster bisque ($5.75/$8.75), fried clam po’boy ($13.50)—and of course, a New England lobster roll ($13.75). kingsfishhouse.com
