Neptune on a Wednesday night
I'll be coming into Boston in May for a game at Fenway. Will be here Wednesday- Sunday with a couple of friends and I don't think I can come to Boston without getting a Lobster Roll from Neptune (Ive read amazing things about it on this board). Is it busy on a Wednesday night? What is the latest I could get there and still expect to get a seat? And is there a dress code there? Im coming for a baseball game with a few friends and don't plan on bringing anything nice to wear if I don't have to. Thanks!
We'll also be in Boston in May to watch the Cubbies sweep. My impression from the Neptune thread is that you could get there at 5 or six and if no tables were available, they would take your cell number and then you could go wander around nearby and they would call you when a table opened up. Is this a misunderstanding on my part?
rog, i hope this is helpful and not confusing. Very close to Fenway are 2 spots to consider, one of which, Island Creek Oyster Bar (ICOB), has another highly touted lobster roll. It certainly would be hugely more convenient (one-time parking and reservations) to eat there. I have recently been to both Neptune Oyster and Island Creek Oyster Bar and I really love NO's tremendous food but i have never had a lobster roll at either place. ICOB is def more swank than NO but you can certainly dress casual/jeans there.
(the other fenway spot is mexican, La Verdad.)
