Best of Boston

2011 Best Seafood Restaurant, Casual

The Daily Catch

It’s true that the menu here rings more Sicilian than New England. But this is equally true: The seafood you’ll find tossed with pasta and served in the skillet, or dressed simply over a salad, is worlds more flavorful than the clam-shack offerings you’ll find all over town. The calamari is tender; the broiled haddock’s simplicity showcases its sweetness; and the chowder is a combo of clams and cream that’s truly soul-warming.
