Bait & Hook Restaurant Review

: Bait & Hook invites you to become an honorary New Englander, inspired by seafood and sports. Myriad TV’s welcome fans of any team who toss back Picklebacks and Fireballs while they enjoy happy hour oysters, beer and wine. Top Chef alum Dave Martin’s seafood menu doesn’t disappoint, with a tricked-out version of New England clam chowder with turkey bacon and lobster, raw bar selections of oysters and shrimp, and a lobster roll that competes with the best from Maine. The kitchen kicks it up with unusual selections like kung pao calamari, a spicy chili rendition that will keep you craving more. Dine on entrées of miso-glazed cod or gingered salmon, each dressed with a creative taste of sweetness, or order the fish ‘n’ chips for something more familiar. The restaurant caters to the neighborhood with gluten-free and kids’ options. Craft beers as well as more refined wines are offered.
