Hi
I'll be visiting Boston with some work collegaues and our supervisor wants to take us out for some good seafood-she suggested Legal Seafoods and I kinda blanched-I love East Coast Grill but apparently it's closed on Monday. Any other suggestions? Oh-it has to be moderately priced. Thank you!!!!

    Anthony Boudain says never eat seafood on a monday. and he's God, so there. if ya don't wanna take a trip up to the clam shacks of the north shore, i got nothing. Legal's, although kinda disliked here, is pretty decent most of the time.

      He will eat fish on Monday if it's at a four-star restaurant or where he know they are buying their fish directly from the source.
      I've read a few of his books and if you followed all his rules, there would be very few places to eat in this town.

      A couple of ideas
      Jasper White's Summer Shack in the Back Bay or Lineage in Brookline

        Not particularly moderate, and varying reviews, but some others are Turner Fisheries, Atlantic Seafood, Lineage, Kingfish Hall, Mare.

          East Coast Grill is open on Mondays. If there are more than five you can make a reservation. I lived nearby and saw fresh fish delivered daily so I don't think you need to worry about freshness and quality.

          I'm not a huge Legal's fan but think that the one in Harvard Square is the best one around.

          Neptune Oyster in the North End is terrific. If you're a large party get there early. You may have to wait a few for a table. It's well worth waiting.

            Dolphin Seafood near Harvard Square is open Mondays and the prices tend to be pretty reasonable. I'd also avoid Summer Shack for both price and quality reasons. I've had good luck food-wise at Legal Seafood, but they're not cheap -- in fact, cheap seafood that one would recommend in good conscience seems tough to find in the Boston area.
