Brought to us by Jeremy Sewall, this Fort Point hot spot specializes in fresh seafood—especially fresh oysters. Row 34 offers a wide selection of local bivalves coming straight from the waters of nearby towns like Wellfleet, Duxbury, Plymouth and Chatham. The team at Row 34 loves its beer as much as it loves its shellfish, so be sure to pair your oysters with whichever recommended brew from the long list of small-production, regional craft beers that this place has on tap.
With seafood aptly front and center in Boston’s dining scene, there’s no such thing as too fresh in this city.
