Fodor's Review

In a city where culinary newcomers tend to garner all the attention, Hemenway's continues to be one of the great seafood restaurants. The menu includes New England staples like a perfectly cracked baked stuffed lobster with lump crab and scallop stuffing, fried whole belly clams, and baked, fried, or grilled George's Bank sea scallops. Inspired chef's specialties include a prosciutto-wrapped rainbow trout and a Portuguese-style grilled littleneck clam appetizer with chouriço (spicy Portugese sausage), savory broth, and grilled bread. The wine list is extensive, and martini lovers will have a hard time making a decision here. High ceilings and huge windows grace the dining room which looks out on the city's World War II Memorial. In warm weather, dine outside on the front patio.
