Seafood at Neptune Oyster
The North End is notorious for a lot of things, but Neptune Oyster is a delightful exception to the touristy, overpriced rule. Diminutive, unassuming, and diva-free, this tile-and-mirror-lined paean to la mer serves the most simple, most fresh, and most inspired seafood in the city. Oysters are a must, with over a dozen varieties dotting the sweet-briny spectrum. You can slum it in luxury with the best-ever lobster roll or a burger topped with perfect fried oysters, or take a spin with the plats du jour plus local farm and crudo specials.
