AMAZING food, oysters, chowder, bread, wine and bar upstairs. A tad pricy but worth it. Walking distance. Not fancy but go dressed cool at least :) Like, put some pants on!
Really fresh fare. Try the Daily Dozen for around $20. Fills up quickly as soon as it opens. The upstairs bar has a smaller menu than the main space downstairs, but great ambiance and you can get in!
This place has a romantic, low key vibe with awesome wine, beer and food. It's a great spot for a casual night out with friends or a romantic date.
