2023 Best Raw Bar

Row 34

Now a quartet thanks to the 2023 debut of its Cambridge outpost, Row 34 continues to be a quintessential New England seafood spot, equally adept at dressing down (beers and oysters at the bar) or dressing up (splurge-y seafood towers and lobster rolls). The oysters, in particular, are outstanding — especially the namesake Row 34 variety from the restaurant’s friends at Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury, which are plump, crisp, and subtly briny. Looking to show an out-of-towner what’s special about Boston seafood? Take them here.
