Two brothers born and raised in southern Maine. Bringing the absolute best Maine seafood dishes to southern California.
At just 21 years old, Owner/Founder Alex Howard, backpacked up and down the coast of California, landing himself in San Diego in April of 2014. After realizing there wasn’t a huge selection of east coast seafood in San Diego, Alex came up with the idea to sell Maine Lobster Rolls and New England Clam Chowder at local Farmers Markets. In October 2014, WML got invited to the Oceanbeach farmers market. Alex would then call his older brother, Eric (24), to help him start and run the business for the remainder of the year.
Hustling up to 10 Farmers Markets a week, WML had its opportunities to sell its dishes at large music venues and festivals. WML would then become an anchor and fan favorite at global wide music festivals such as Coachella, Stagecoach, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, FireFly, and many more.
After diving into large music venues, WML had its first brick-and-mortar location in April 2016. Inside the Liberty Public Market in Point Loma San Diego. Quickly they then would add a 2nd location in the year 2018. WML had its first brick-and-mortar location in downtown San Diego. They became a heavy favorite in the new Little Italy Food Hall.
WML has 6 New Restaurants set to open in the upcoming 2020 and 2021 years. With new locations in National City, Carlsbad, Hawaii (Waikiki), and also 3 new stores in LA, (Culver City, Topanga, and Edin Park)
