Fodor's Expert Review B&G Oysters

$$$ The South End Seafood

B&G Oysters' Chef Barbara Lynch (of No. 9 Park, the Butcher Shop, Sportello, DRINK, and Menton fame) offers a style-conscious seafood restaurant with fresher than fresh oysters from both coasts; creative, seasonal dishes; and New England classics, including one of the best lobster rolls in the city. Designed to imitate the inside of an oyster shell, the iridescent bar glows with silvery, candlelighted tiles and a sophisticated crowd that in warm weather fills the hidden outdoor patio strung with tiny white lights. Caviar lovers should drop in weekdays between 3 and 6 pm for a caviar happy hour, when all oysters get a free dollop on top.
