B&G Oysters

Maybe it’s the two dozen varieties of oysters talking, but we’ve fallen hard for B&G. Barbara Lynch’s imaginative takes on the standards—a lobster roll lined with bacon, Portuguese clam stew accented with pork belly—pair seamlessly with an ever changing menu of flounced-up yellowfin, sole, perch, and halibut. Wash it all down with one of 40 wines on offer and you, too, will feel a wave of affection coming on.
