For years, Bill Dugan has run an "occasional" restaurant out of his seafood shop, the Fish Guy. Now he's given the antiseptically clean and bright space a renovation, converting one fish case into a dining bar and adding a few permanent tables in front. Recently, the food has taken a step up, with a lobster roll that does the quality of the product justice and a clam sandwich that has big, meaty fried clams and ramp pesto.

You don't know what to expect when you walk into this place -- it's a cozy little with amazing seafood selections (and occasionally top notch meats -- kobe burgers, etc). The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They are also neighborhood experts. We brought home some ocean trout and it was divine.
