“Eating oysters is a have to while you’re in Boston in case you’re partial to shellfish,” says Balaguer, a food author and the dealing with editor of an academic magazine entitled Food, Culture, and Society. “Some places even have $1 oyster specials, like Red House in Harvard Square, that’s one in all my favorite locations to go to slurp down a dozen or so with a glass of wine.”
Many traffic to Boston are searching out pinnacle-notch seafood like the fare at the Red House in Cambridge, so I ask Balaguer, who has a master’s diploma in gastronomy (food studies) from Boston University, to suggest a number of her favorite seafood joints. Here are her choices and feedback:
The Red House. “I love that Red House has a phase on its menu just for lobster dishes, a patio for ingesting exterior, a comfortable fireplace for eating indoors, and lovable staff.”
Russell House Tavern. “Just down the road from Red House, Russell House also has a pleasing choice of oysters, so it is worth going there, heading downstairs and bellying up to the bar to look what they’re serving that day.”
Neptune Oyster Bar. “If someone asked me in which to go for the great seafood in Boston, I would direct them to Neptune Oyster Bar inside the North End. Is it pricy? Yes. Will you in all likelihood ought to watch for a desk? You betcha. But it is so really worth it. The raw bar choice is outstanding, they make a tremendous lobster roll, and I’m a fan in their seared scallops. Plus, the North End is an adorable area to wander round.”
Island Creek Oyster Bar. “Island Creek has its own oyster farm, and Jeremy Sewell, the chef, and owner, is one of the predominant authorities on oysters within the united states of America. His oysters are my favorite south of Prince Edward Island. I want to devour them with only a dash of green tabasco sauce to convey out their floral fine. Island Creek is pricy, so, if you don’t want to splurge for dinner, cross for brunch.”
Legal Harborside. “If you’re seeking out ambiance and an exquisite view, I quite recommend going to the Seaport and consuming and consuming at Legal Harborside’s rooftop bar. Most human beings have heard of Legal Seafood. However, this is its excessive-cease restaurant, and you get what you pay for. A buddy and I once attended a wine-tasting dinner right here, and one dish became an awesome vanilla-butter poached lobster. It turned into a few years ago. However, my buddy and I nonetheless reminisce approximately it. Legal also serves my second-favorite clam chowder in Boston.”
Union Oyster House. “My preferred chowder is at this iconic restaurant. It’s so thick that the servers shaggy dog story you could stand a spoon in it. I’ve tried, and you can nearly do it. You could make a meal of a bowl of New England clam chowder and cornbread. Plus, the region has a lot of records that it’s going to blow your mind. Just ask your server to share some tidbits about who have eaten here.”
Those are Balagur’s favorites, but she says there are lots of other extremely good seafood eating places within the Boston location.
“I like Saltie Girl in the Back Bay, Loyal Nine in Cambridge, B&G Oysters within the South End and The Barking Crab in Fort Pointe,” she says. “Loyal Nine is likewise high-quality for brunch, and bear in mind words: lobster popover. B&G Oyster has a patio and the maximum superb carrier I’ve ever had in Boston. The staff surely knows its stuff and the way to make a special dining enjoy. Another region that does not necessarily specialize in seafood but does wonderfully thrilling fish dishes is Whaling in Oklahoma inside the South End. I had an uncooked tuna dish there that melted in my mouth.”
Speaking of uncooked fish, Balaguer says Uni and o ya are “very unique sushi locations” with creative sushi and sashimi. “The first-class word to describe a meal at both eating place is decadent,” she says.
Possibly the alternative of sushi and sashimi are fried clams, however, to devotees, also they may be decadent. Balaguer shows heading for eating places at Cape Anne, about 30 miles northeast of Boston, to find the exceptional fried stomach clams. In Boston, she recommends Sullivan’s on Castle Island in Southie (South Boston).
“Eating seafood at the beach: Does it get higher than that?” Balaguer asks.
