Take Your Pick of Oyster Varieties at Neptune Oyster
August 30, 2018 |
If you enjoy a good raw bar, the regulars at Neptune Oysters say you won't want to miss this Boston culinary landmark. When you step inside the door, you'll find yourself facing a long, marble-topped counter. Take a seat at the counter if you want the classic raw bar experience (though if youíre visiting with a group, regulars say that a table is a better choice).
The menu includes nearly two dozen different oyster varieties, from Katama Bay in Massachussetts all the way to Kachemak Bay in Alaska. Order yours by the half dozen, and add a few littleneck clams, sea urchins, and crab claws for good measure. Entrees include a number of popular seafood options (try the Nantucket swordfish served with Persian cucumber and rose harissa), as well as thick-cut ribeye steaks served with crispy golden fries and a salad on the side.
