Best of Boston

2006 Best Seafood Restaurant


Less is more at Mare. Whether it’s the unusually stark décor (more SoHo than North End) or the delicate hand chefs use on the restaurant’s high-quality seafood. No heavy sauces here. The whole sea bass is grilled with just a dash of lemon, salt, and herbs, and meaty scallops sit pristinely atop homemade lemon angel-hair pasta. The tasting menu is worth every penny.
