Born in Rhode Island, I have had my fair share of delicious lobster in all forms. For those of you not familiar with this heavenly culinary delight it is composed of beautiful chunks of buttered warm lobster meat served in a toasted hot dog bun. It is odd but it works. Recently in Boston I was told by a local to check out Neptune Oyster.
Not surprisingly their raw bar has a great assortment of fresh oysters sourced from multiple ocean spots along the east coast. After a starter of fresh oysters from Point Judith, I was served the most bountiful luscious lobster roll. I couldn’t believe my eyes at the sight of the generous chunks of beautiful lobster meat. Served with the roll were hot amazing french fries. Is this a meal to count calories - no. This is a meal to indulge and enjoy! So good I came back another night to explore the other seafood items on the menu. On the second night I ate Neptune Oyster’s succulent scallop dish. Peppered with crunchy Brussels sprouts and tasty nuggets of Maytag blue cheese, the dish did not disappoint.
Located in the Boston neighborhood of the North End this gem of a seafood spot is worth the trip. It is located at 63 Salem Street which is a small side street, so if you are taking a cab tell your driver the cross streets are between Morton and Stillman Streets. Neptune Oyster is open everyday at 11:30am.
