The best seafood in Boston can be found at Neptune Oyster. Neptune classics like their overstuffed Lobster Roll served hot with butter maintains the succulent tenderness of the meat while the clam chowder, thinner than most, gets a boost of flavor from a fresh herb (possibly chevril) that gives it an extra special kick. The raw bar is stocked with a fair share of east and west coast oysters, littlenecks, cherrystones, and razor clams as well as cooked cocktail favorites. The no reservations policy of this very cozy space make it imperative that you arrive early or are happy to wait-elsewhere.
