When I think New England, I think seafood. Not the fancy towers of tuna sashimi or perfectly arranged plate of halibut cooked “sous vide” but rather the charming roadside restaurants in Maine. Perhaps it’s the crisp outdoor air but somehow this casual dining experience inevitably makes the lobster taste sweeter and the memories of fresh seafood linger longer. B&G Oyster has managed to capture this essence of impeccable New England seafood favorites, albeit in a much tonier environment. Several sources proclaim that the lobster roll at B&G Oyster is the best in New England. Deceptively simple, the B&G lobster roll consists of a buttered grilled hotdog bun stuffed with a salad of lobster, aioli, celery and chives. It is served with homemade bread-and-butter pickles, coleslaw, fries and enough lobster meat to justify its pricey cost of $20+. Two other variations on this superb sandwich are the classic B.L.T. and the B.L.T. with lobster. With a blend of homestyle New England seafood and luxurious upscale touches, B&G Oyster is a good place for a fashionable dinner with a couple of friends or a romantic dinner for two.
Dinner for two with wine – $120
