On our recent travels to Boston, we hit up one of the most famous seafood restaurants, Legal Sea Foods. We met several of our good friends here and had a wonderful group dinner.
There are actually several locations throughout Boston and Cambridge. We visited the Park Square branch, which had a really nice interior. S had also visited the one by MIT before on a previous trip.
We started the meal with a half-dozen oysters – we tried two varieties, one that’s slightly brinier and another that’s a bit more fishy. These oysters were delicious, but so far nothing has been as amazing as the fresh oysters I’ve had from the oyster farm in Tomales Bay.
The most famous item here (according to S) is the clam chowder. I’m normally not a big fan of white clam chowder, but I must admit that this was really good. Smooth, creamy, with just the right amount of clams to add a touch of saltiness and seafood flavor.
