New England clam chowder; lobster roll; fried clams; steamed lobster; lobster bake dinner.
These schooner-chic dining rooms—spawned 50 years ago from a Cambridge, Massachusetts, fish market—are still satisfying the cravings of homesick New Englanders with shore classics and a well-priced wine list. A newer addition: full menus for diners with gluten allergies.
What to get: Extra-thick New England clam chowder; steamers; lobster salad with plenty of black pepper on a buttered bun; fried clams; steamed lobsters plain or as part of the lobster-bake dinner.
