Best Seafood North End

Hi all, I'm taking out a client from CA for dinner on Sunday night in the North End and he's looking for "great Boston seafood." Where would you go for the best seafood there? Thanks!

  1. Neptune is far and away the best seafood in the North End. However they do not take reservations and the wait will be long. If you have the time, you can go put your name in and walk around the North End and have a drink. They will call your cell when your seats are available.

    If you want something more Italian style, the Daily Catch still does a pretty good job.

      Neptune. But it will be crowded, and you will have to go early and put your name in and then go to a nearby bar to wait for them to call you.

        Daily Catch is cash only....just so you know.

      2. in the north end i 3rd neptune, but there will be a huge wait.

        row 34 in the seaport is another option and walking distance from the north end.

          1. Why seafood in the North End?

            The Neptune attitude repels me, but the Row 34 suggestion is a great one, although not that close to the North End.

            Daily Catch is good but perhaps not client-worthy.

            1. We enjoyed Mare when we ate there a couple of years ago.

                I love Mare as well. On a nice day, the windows are all open - the raw options are plentiful (which I love) and there are great pasta dishes.
