Neptune Oyster

Top choice seafood in West End & North End

Neptune’s menu hints at Italian, but you’ll also find elements of Mexican, French, Southern and old-fashioned New England. The daily seafood specials and impressive raw bar (featuring several kinds of oysters, plus littlenecks, cherrystones, crabs and mussels) confirm that this is not your traditional North End eatery.

The retro interior offers a convivial – if crowded – setting, with an excellent option for solo diners at the marble bar.
