It is required that every visitor to Boston try at least one type of seafood from the area. Fresh selections are many, starting with a traditional lobster bake from Summer Shack, No Name or Daily Catch. The raw bar at Neptune Oyster is hard to beat. You can find New England Clam Chowder at many restaurants in the city, but remember, all chowders are not created equal. An awesome version can be found at Ned Devine's in Faneuil Hall, with just the right amount of thickness and sweet flavor. Oysters from Island Creek Oyster Bar, Toro and Legal Seafood will satisfy your bivalve craving. Then there's the lobster roll. Again Island Creek scores a win, along with Belle Isle Seafood, and the yearly favorite, James Hook and Co.
