Seafood Restaurant in Cambridge, MA, United States
This Cape Cod–style shack (and lobster shop) offers tubs of steamers and an excellent lobster sandwich, with buttered-and-toasted scali bread and a classic filling of lobster meat, mayo, and black pepper.
There’s a bar by the fish market in front, sit-down space in back, and lots of outdoor seating by the water. Wherever you dine, order the jumbo-lump crab cakes and the fried calamari served “Portuguese”-style.
American Restaurant in Rockport, MA, United States
“I spend a lot of time up in Gloucester, fishing, so I go to the Lobster Pool a lot. It’s on the water, tucked into a little cove. On certain days they have a little campfire out there and make s’mores.”—Anthony Caturano, chef-owner, Prezza.
