MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
It's set in the West Coast, but this new-school shack still has serious East Coast vibes—even if it does indeed source its sustainable, wild-caught seafood from both the Atlantic and Pacific. With an extensive raw bar, parking lot strewn with shells and a funky interior plastered with seafaring knickknacks, it’s a fitting tribute to Chef Michael Cimarusti’s New England origins. Chowder is a must for a seafood spot and this particular one offers a tempting flight of three: creamy New England, tomato-based Manhattan and buttery Rhode Island. The lobster roll, packed with tail and claw meat, is a gem among solo diners, while chilled seafood platters and the oak-grilled fish are great for crowds. Don't forget to grab a bit of saltwater taffy on your way out.
