Neptune Oyster; Boston

This casual North End seafood spot specializes in East Coast oysters, offering nine varieties daily accompanied by the classic horseradish cocktail sauce and a Prosecco-based mignonette. The fantastic chef Michael Serpa offers playful preparations like Neptunes on Piggyback—crispy deep-fried oysters served with Berkshire pork and pistachio aioli—but the restaurant’s most popular dish is the spectacular seven-ounce Maine lobster roll. The sandwich is offered classic- (cold with mayonnaise) or Connecticut-style (hot with clarified butter), and served in a toasted brioche roll from Iggy’s, a local bakery.
