B&G Oysters (Boston, MA)

There's no lack of oysters in Boston, but B and G Oysters in the South End from prolific restaurateur Barbara Lynch is one of the best places to get some.

Carrying at least a dozen different types daily from local to the other coast, paired with prosecco mignonette and a strong wine list, B&G's bar is a great place to taste through new varietals of this mollusk.
The oysters here are market price, but you can fill your stomach with the rest of their seafood-focused menu, like a tuna tartare bourride with citrus, soft yolk, chicharron crumble ($16)

But don't miss the Fried oysters with housemade tartar sauce ($15)
These are the perfect bites hiding juicy oysters inside.
Need snacks for the table? Try the Lemon chicharrones ($4)

There are plenty to be had here, like the lobster BLT, clam chowder, or crispy whole branzino. We tried the Squid ink spaghetti alla chitarra (grilled market squid, boquerones, tomato, $26)

With its exceptional oyster program and solid food, B & G Oysters' various accolades (from Best Seafood to Best Oyster Bar, from local magazines to Food and Wine Mag) are well deserved.
