Best Fish & Chips in the metro Boston area
I'm looking to take my husband out for his birthday this week and he loves fish & chips. Any recommendations for the best in the metro-Boston area? Nothing too greasy with extra heavy batter. Just looking for fresh fish with a nice crust and good flavor. Thanks in advance!
There's a fair amount of places around Greater Boston that do a more than decent job on fish & chips so I'll just add two of my favorites;
Stone's Public House http://www.stonespublichouse.com/
Matt Murphy's Pub http://www.mattmurphyspub.com/
.....and since it's summer and The Stone has great Paddy-O dining I'd have to tilt towards their substantial offering that has an unbelievable light batter. Fwiw, I order it there with curry chips.

It's been a while, but I used to really love the Blarney Stone's. And, at this time of the year you can eat outside on their patio -- you would never know you are chow-ing on Dot Ave!
I have to agree with Meffababe, Moultons Seafood on Winthrop Street in Medford is excellent. I have been there several times to eat in and once for takeout. They make an excellent homemade clam chowder. I like their fisherman's platter with haddock, clams, shrimp, scallops and fries. Moulton's uses trans fat free oil.
