Fodor's Review

This fun and unpretentious restaurant has many fresh and local seafood dishes, and those with other tastes can choose from such options as filet mignon and prime rib; even vegetarians are well cared for. Raw bar enthusiasts will be enticed, too, with the option of getting a half-pound of steamed shrimp, Dungeness crab legs, snow crab legs, or littleneck clams. From live Maine lobsters to blue-point oysters, this is the place for any kind of seafood you crave. Although

the interior is romantic, with exposed brick and dark wood, if the weather's nice, dine alfresco on one of the city's favorite patios. The Sunday brunch is especially attractive, as are the specialty drinks, particularly the martinis.
