Best of Boston

1977 Best Fish Market

Yankee Trader Seafoods

The aquatic critters sold here are fresh enough to bite back. Also highly recommended: The Davis Square Fish Market & Sea Grill at 27 Holland St. in Sommerville, more a lunch counter than a real market, serves a big variety of seafood (spawn and cusk are on the menu in season) prepared any way you request it. A tomato or grapefruit juice cocktail, a mixed salad cut up to order, vegetables, and potatoes come on dinners. Freddie the Fish, a combination fish market and restaurant in Day Square, East Boston, also cooks up plentiful portions of surf food at low prices and boasts a small selection of good wine and beer as well.
