I still have a couple Boston eats to catch up on. That Boston hockey weekend flew by and before I knew it, it was time to head home. But before heading to the airport, I stopped by Neptune Oyster for a seafood lunch.
It was Monday and I was able to grab a corner seat at the white marble bar after standing around for only a few minutes.
I was ready for some oysters and wine!
I started off with a glass of Riesling.
You’re handed a list of the day’s raw bar selection. Just write down how many you want and if you would like cocktail sauce, mignonette, or both. I went with a few Kumamoto oysters (my favorite!), a few Fanny Bays, and a couple Cherrystone Clams.
You can watch them shuck and prepare everything near the large window.
The oysters were crisp, clean, and delicious.
The Kumamoto oysters were mild with a honeydew finish. Love them!
The clams were juicy and sweet.
I ordered another glass of wine before ordering my main dish. It was an Albariño from Spain.
The daily special, lobster spaghettini, looked really good, but I had to try the Maine Lobster Roll. You can get it hot with butter or cold with mayo. I went with the hot version.
The lobster meat was incredibly tender and sweet. It was all coated in warm butter and served in a toasted brioche bun. So simple, but so good.
It came with freshly made fries and ketchup on the side.
Lunch was a hit. The oysters and clams were exquisite, the lobster roll was delicious, and the wine was fabulous. Service was friendly and the place was bright, lively, and cozy. So glad I had the chance to eat at Neptune Oyster before heading to the airport.
