Best Seafood, Italian and Asian-fusion restaurants.
hi, I do not think that the Boston scene is as advanced.
We have Asian fish in the tank restaurants that are comparable to those in NYC - just comparable: I like them but would not make a special effort to seek them out. .
Neptune Oyster and Island Creek Oyster Bar are worth looking into for seafood. O Ya and Uni Bar compare to good innovative Japanese sushi in NYC; they are Asian fusion and would be interesting even in NYC.
For Italian, I like Rialto in Harvard Square (get the 1.00 oyster speicial on Mondays) and Erbaluce..
