Scup's in the Harbor--a Fantastic Find!

Being an East Boston resident my visit to Scup's was long overdue! But on Friday I finally made the trip, well we actually walked and it was great. And the best part is that the outdoor dining allowed for dogs so my boyfriend and I along with our dog enjoyed a terrific Friday night dinner outdoors. We started with feta stuffed tomatoes that were roasted or broiled in the oven that were served with crostinis and were really delicious. For our meals we each had a version of their BLTs since hearing all the hype there was no way we could go there without trying them. He had a chicken salad club and I had their traditional BLT (or not so traditional) since it was topped with an awesome Cabot cheddar cheese and pesto. We both loved our meals and got a brownie to go that we enjoyed later that evening.
As an aside they had a nice beer selection--I am a big fan of Allagash White and they had it in the bottle so that was a very pleasant surprise!
I will also say that the owners could not have been nicer and more welcoming. When we were finishing up another couple sat at our table and chatted with us for a few minutes as well. It really felt like a community and I was very happy to be a part of it, not to mention totally satisfied and stuffed!
This has become one of my favorite places in the Boston area. And with Mehak just down the street and Piers Park a stone's throw away, I find myself in the Jeffries Point section of Eastie more and more.
The only thing that could make the experience better would be to take the water taxi over. What a great way to go to lunch/dinner on a mellow summer day!
