I am moving to a sadly lanlocked state next week and am looking for someplace fabulous to go for a last delicious seafood dinner in Boston. Any suggestions???
New Jumbo or Peach Farm in Chinatown, Cantonese seafood. The former generally does better with fried dishes, while the latter is better at steamed ones.
The Daily Catch in the North End. try the monkfish marsala with a side of squid ink pasta aglio olio (you'll need to request for the upgrade to the squid ink pasta from teh reqgular red or white sauce linguini).
O Ya for a very modern approach to sashimi or sushi, in the Leather District. Budget about $150 per person.
jasper white's summer shack at the end of the redline, alewife! is that still there? when i lived in boston, there wasnt a better place to get fresh, simply prepared seafood in a fabulously low key environment. i especially liked the cod cakes and the crabs which you smashed with hammers. mmm. they also had really huge lobsters. all very reasonably priced, too.
I had a fantastic experience at Neptune Oyster last night in the North End. I sat at the bar--fun experience! I had a dozen oysters(which were all remarkable--5 types) and the special sea urchin crudo w/ chick peas,eggplant and mint. The waitress was excellent and she hooked me up great wines for each dish(Italian whites). People around me were all enjoying their meals--fried clams,fried oysters(complex dish), baccalau w/ tomato gravy(like mashed potatoes)...Cozy little scene there :)))
