Raw Bar

Editors’ Choice 

Island Creek Oyster Bar, Burlington 

Standout qualities: Chef Jeremy Sewall knows his way around fish, and is on a first-name basis with many of their providers.

What’s Unique: The generous shellfish platter for four includes a full lobster split in half, a dozen Island Creek oysters, four littleneck clams, four cocktail shrimp, and a ceviche.

Insider tip: Request a seat at the “Back Bar” for dinner as theatre—customers may watch a whole fish getting butchered, raw-bar chefs restocking with fresh oysters and shellfish, and chefs checking over fresh orders of lobster, oysters, etc.

300 District Ave., Burlington, 781-761-6500, islandcreekoysterbar.com
