Okay, "I'll bite" what is the difference between New England hot dog bun and the kind I might get here in the "left" coast?

The NE style buns are baked all together in a pan so the sides are white (unbaked). The cut is made into the top where the crust is. So when there is a dog in the bun, the top has a crust and the sides do not.

With the other kind of bun, when the dog is in the bun, one side is the top crust of the bun and the other side is the bottom crust of the bun

that description seems kinda odd to me.

almost all of the store bought hot dog buns that i buy are baked in close proximity so that the sides are a bit white and still slightly comnnected as such, not with the (somewhat negligible) crust.

the only difference, imo, is how they're split.

am i missing something?

I guess it depends on what you consider the sides, Tom, or which way you hold the hotdog.

Now you are talking my language. It is the one way I will never turn down lobster. And it definitely has to be on a N.E. style toasted bun.

For those of you who don't know what a New England style hot dog bun looks like, take a plain piece of white bread and fold it, top to bottom. The only crust is on the top and it too is very soft like that on white bread. The split is on the top of the bun, not the side. And it has a flat top. Spread soft butter on both sides and place on the grill or frying pan until toasty brown. You now have a taste of heaven.

The lobster roll was started in Maine. (Where else would you expect it to be founded) Just chunks of lobster, chopped fine celery and mayo with a little salt. Served on a N.E. style hot dog bun. I just can't imagine it being served up on any other style bun. The butter toasted bun is the final much needed touch.

There is a clam place in Ipswich that serves only Ipswich clams. It is called The Clam Box. The building is shaped like a clam box. They get their clams fresh every day from the local clammers on the beaches and clam beds in Ipswich. To die for. To walk right over Grandma to get to them. Even step on her if necessay. Big fat bellies. My mouth is watering.
