2023 Oysters

Editors’ Choice

1606 Restaurant & Oyster Bar, Gloucester 

Pull up a stool upholstered in bright aqua at this sleek oyster bar, tiled in jewel-like shades of blue to confer a shimmery ocean vibe. Channel your inner mermaid as you peruse a special selection of shellfish and cocktails conceived to complement raw bar offerings. Oyster selections change daily, based on what is most delectable, and focus on a wide variety of East Coast oysters. Choose the “Melody,” a chef’s selection of a dozen oysters, or explore the seasonal daily composed oyster dish, served with complementary toppings like salmon roe, pickled shallot, and chive crème fraîche or pickled mango and cilantro. 55 Commercial St., Gloucester, 978-282-0008 Ext. 2,
