Boston Trip: Island Creek Oyster Bar
The final food destination in Boston was at Island Creek Oyster Bar.
We came just before 5PM and was seated immediately. I really liked the ambiance because it was chic, modern, slightly dim, high ceilings, and just feels very cozy and spacious.
We started with drinks and light appetizers.
|Cocktails, Wine, and Cider Beer|
|Appetizers & Side Orders|
We also had the Fried Calamari which was pretty tasty and I wanted to try the Roasted Crimini Mushrooms which was mediocre. It didn't really taste like it was roasted, more like it was bathed in a bath of butter and oil.
It was extremely yummy and worth the $28.00. It was also accompanied with cole slaw and the kettle chips.
|Lobster Roe Noodles|
It was absolutely beautiful, the way it's plated and an interesting dish. This is definitely something I haven't found in New York City restaurants yet. It's also a little expensive ($36.00 to be exact), but I guess if you're sharing it with other people then that's okay.
Overall, I think we all prefer Island Creek Oyster Bar much more. We didn't have to wait five hours for a seat and we didn't feel squished or rushed. The entire experience was great and relaxing. I would definitely come back here again when we return to Boston.
