Our vote for best seafood is the Atlantic Fish Company, which you’ll find on Boylston Street. Not only is the food delicious, but the location is quaint and nestled in between other restaurants and shops with a precious patio out front you’ll enjoy in the spring and summer!
Best Oysters: Neptune Oysters
