What began as a tiny restaurant adjacent to a Cambridge fish market has grown to important regional status, with more than 30 East Coast locations. The hallmark is the freshest possible seafood, whether you have it wood-grilled, in New England chowder, or doused in an Asia-inspired sauce. The jumbo lump crab cakes are divine (no fillers) and the clam chowder is so good it has become a menu staple at presidential inaugurations. For a true taste of New England, don't miss
the golden cracker-crowned baked lobster stuffed with shrimp and scallops, one of the most popular entrées on the menu. This location has private dining inside its beautiful, bottle-lined wine cellar.
