BOSTON, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With the demise of the planet scheduled for December 21, as the Mayans had predicted, Legal Sea Foods is creating a meal to end all meals with an over-the-top baked stuffed lobster and a specially created cocktail called "Mayan Ruin."

The "Sacrificial Baked Stuffed Lobster" is a 2.5-pound crustacean stuffed with (more) lobster, scallops, foie gras, porcini mushrooms, and truffle oil garnished with shaved black truffles.  Befitting the decadence of the ingredients, the entree is priced at $150.  After all, you can't take it with you.

"If the world really is going to end, according to the Mayan calendar, I can't think of a better way to enjoy your last day on Earth than at Legal Sea Foods," said Roger Berkowitz, president of the famed Boston-based restaurant.  "And if the Mayans are somehow proven wrong, well, that will make for a nice happy hour the next day."

The meal is truly a limited time offer, and will be served only at Legal's flagship restaurant, Legal Harborside, located on the Boston Harbor.

It's been well documented that Mayans drank fermented beverages made from the agave plant, which led Legal's mixologists to create a unique cocktail honoring that tradition.  The "Mayan Ruin" is made with a spirit derived from the agave plant, Del Maguey Vida Mezcal.  The Mezcal will be coupled with St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and ginger beer to create a drink that will have people partying like there's no tomorrow - which will be true.  The cocktail, also available exclusively at Legal Harborside, is priced at $10.

No comment from Legal Sea Foods as to whether doggie bags will be made available to diners given the circumstances.

Legal Sea Foods was founded more than 60 years ago as a small fish market in Inman Square, Cambridge.  Today, President and CEO Roger Berkowitz leads the company toward continued growth and diversification. With 30+ restaurants up and down the East Coast, Legal Sea Foods has earned scores of honors and awards (its Clam Chowder has been served at every presidential inaugural since 1981), and proudly carries its well-earned reputation as the nation's finest seafood restaurant.
