Streetside Seafood Restaurant Review

: Cozy is an understatement when describing this petite, brick-walled seafooder that is so crammed with devotees most nights that the waiters can barely squeeze through to reach the tightly packed tables. The copper-topped bar takes up half the space, which fills with casually dressed young professionals who meet to mingle; often, they spill out toward the fashionable suburban downtown area while awaiting a seat. Beneath ceilings hung with huge fish sculptures, diners partake in Great Lakes perch, smoked salmon pasta, and the New England Shellfish Boil, a tantalizing dish with one-half Maine lobster tail, scallops, clams, mussels, shrimp, chicken apple sausage, sweet potatoes and fennel in a saffron clam broth. Landlubbers may opt for the filets or the chicken with a Parmesan crust. Desserts include dark chocolate crème brûlée with sea salt and walnut bourbon pie. The well-stocked wine cellar holds affordable whites and reds from all over the globe.
