The menu changes regularly, and the fall brings gem-like morsels that leave lasting impressions, like wild rock shrimp kakiage in a clear herbal broth and finished with fresh yuzu zest and warm sesame mayo.
Daily specials feature lobster spaghettini, shrimp and grits, and fish tacos, while staples include a North End cioppino. We think the Maine lobster roll smothered with creamy hot butter is the best in the city.
If you come for drinks and appetizers, don’t miss the third floor roof deck that is open year-round. In the warmer months, the retractable glass roof opens for al fresco seaside snacking, while in the colder months, you can warm up by the fireplace.
Don’t miss the frequent wine dinners that are held in the underground wine cellar here, which boasts over 10,000 bottles and 800 different labels. End your visit with a true taste of Beantown by indulging in a slice of Boston cream pie.
Fried faves galore (with homemade tartar sauce, of course) also abound, including Ipswich clams and Point Judith calamari. Seasonal main events range from Scottish salmon and spottail bass to a roasted lobster tail and pan-roasted fluke.
Meat lovers can nosh on a ten-ounce filet mignon, 14-ounce New York strip, or a "carpetbagger" with fried oysters and shallot sauce. Round it all off with a heaping slice of peppermint stick ice cream pie with rich chocolate ganache.
