Translate that into "how many seafood restaurants can we squeeze in without kids revolting?"
We hit two in as many days (canceling reservations at another) and enjoyed both.
Island Creek Oyster Bar for their oyster sliders and their raw Island Creek Oysters. Kettle chips with the Lobster Roll were also delicious. Fried clams were a huge hit with the kids; we had to order a second round, because it never made its way down the adult end of the table!
Neptune Oyster. The huge, juicy pieces of lobster meat were succulent and sweet. Island Creek oysters here were best in show— better than the Wellfleets and Katama Bays—meaty with a butter and brine taste.
Walking along Newbury Street, we had to stop into Sweet, with its beautiful signage and gorgeous cupcakes. Is this red & white buttercream swirl not the best?
The Kids were happy with our dessert stop at Max Brenner, home of all things chocolate. Of particular note are the chocolate syringes with gummi bears. The Novelty. The Fantasy. The Fun!
The gorgeous Trinity Church
Can't wait to get back to Boston for another whirlwind tour!
