North End restaurateur Frank DePasquale keeps building on his own success, most recently moving oyster bar Mare into larger quarters and upping its raw bar game. Its new calling card is the crudo menu, best enjoyed on the sleek patio with fire pits and a retractable roof (so yes, we’re talking year-round alfresco dining here). Otherwise, the marriage of seafood and Italian cuisine translates to a more-is-more menu: seafood meatballs, grilled stuffed calamari and Maine lobster casserole. If you’re feeling extra flush, peruse the wine vault offerings—no time like the present to taste a $400 Napa Valley Meritage.
