Best of Boston

2014 Best Fish and Chips

Yankee Lobster Co.

As higher-end restaurants and gastropubs continue to unveil their refined takes on this New England classic, we prefer to keep it simple. Primarily a counter with a few indoor and outdoor seats, this Seaport shack fries up ultra-fresh fish until it’s perfectly crunchy, then tosses it into a basket with slender, golden-hued fries—no bells and whistles necessary.
