I'm serving grilled oysters this weekend. Any thoughts on the best place to get them in the Metro-Boston area?

    i've heard that the Roch Bros. chain has pretty good oysters.
    let us know how it works out.

      For a supermarket, Roche Bros. has very fresh seafood, supplied by Foley. I find them pretty pricey though.

      I suggest you go to one of better fishmongers that have been mentioned on this board in the past. Bread & Circus, Courthouse Seafood, Freshpond Seafood, the one on Huron Ave near Formaggio Kitchen, Captain Marden's. And it sound like Roche Bros would be a good choice too.
