Island Creek Oyster Bar, Burlington

Standout Qualities: These Narragansett Lager steamed mussels with pickled fresnos and scallion have gotten several thumbs up by the BONS committee as being the best mussels they have ever had! You won’t want to leave a drop of the pan juices behind—use the side of the grilled bread to sop up the goodness. 

What’s Unique: The beachy décor of paddle door handles and a wall of crushed oyster shells will have you thinking you are on the coast rather than bustling Burlington!
