Neptune Oyster - Best Dishes
Going to Neptune for first time this week...besides the oysters, what are the can't miss dishes? Jim.
The warm lobster roll with butter is amazing (basically lazy man's lobster on a roll) and the burger topped w/fried oysters was delish, as well!
I'd say get one salad (they're big, rich, lovely), the clam chowder (great clam flavor), something fried (the fried clams are my favorite in town), an evening special (if you're there for dinner), and wines by the glass (very well chosen for this food). Do an East vs. West Coast raw oyster comparison (surprising how different they are). Even the burger is good here. I wish the lobsters rolls came on different bread, but that's a quibble.
For appetizers the mussels and littlenecks are good, fried clams are great, neptunes on piggyback looks great, and the baby octupus is really good. The oysters are the freshest tasting in the city.
For salads the avocado crab salad that is on the menu now is outstanding.
The Arctic Char crudo and the Nantucket bay scallop crudo are both wonderful.
The lobster strogganof is insanely rich and can easily be shared by two.If your there on Monday get the lobster spaghetini.The cioppino is the best version in the city.
The burger, lobster roll, and Vitello tonnato are all great sandwiches.
if you wanna try the lobster roll, go there earlier in the evening...they were out of it when i tried to order it at about 8pm!
