Useful information


This tight and warm seafood spot is located just down the block from the ocean. Inside, it's decidedly beachy, flooded with sunlight and colors that make it feel cozy even when it's loud and busy.

Raw bar dishes comprise half the menu, which lists different types of oysters, clams and lobsters that can be ordered as set platters or individually. The rest of the carte offers a selection of “old school” classics like gumbo, crab cakes and New England clam chowder revealing huge, meaty unshelled bivalves with chunks of bacon and potatoes. Adventurous palates will take pleasure in the “new school” fare—perhaps grilled octopus with saffron and chorizo, mahi mahi tacos or rockfish ceviche with persimmon. Desserts are well-portioned and genuinely desirable.
