Best of Boston

2001 Best Seafood, Conglomerate, North

Main Street in Essex

Why limit yourself to one seafood venue when you can have it all on just one block? Main Street’s dream team of major seafood players—Tom Shea’s (for unbeatable grilled seafood), Woodman’s (for topnotch classic fried clams, lobster tails, and scallops), and Periwinkles (for expertimental, fusion-minded fish dishes)—offers Cape Ann’s highest concentration of fine fish. Put together, they provide what may just be the perfect seafood sampler.
