Description

In 2003, Barbara opened B&G Oysters, LTD., providing the city with a classic yet stylish oyster bar. At the center of the dining room of this subterranean restaurant is an open kitchen surrounded by a white marble bar and black bar stools. Cool blue and grey tiles accented by stainless steel lend a calming oceanic aura to the space while the funky music playing keeps the mood fun and social. The menu offers exquisitely fresh seafood including a daily selection of 12 oyster varieties, ready to be shucked, and fun New England-inspired dishes such as a lobster BLT. One half of the menu is devoted to clam shack and raw bar classics while the other half to seasonally-inspired New England fare that showcases local produce and seafood. The small and reasonably priced wine list features a number of whites and sparklers as well as a selection of smooth reds that compliment shellfish and seafood. Never tried a Gigamoto? No worries. This is a staff that loves their mollusks and bivalves: they can discuss oysters the way other servers might discuss a fine wine, able to describe a particular oysters origin, flavor profile, and farming method.
