I'm in Boston for business, knowing that I should have an incredible experience with the freshest seafood and most perfect oysters. A "local" told me about Island Creek and I went there for a business dinner that very evening. HIt: arrive early enough, because even on a Monday, this place rocks.
My business guest and I split a dozen oysters, he also had the Crab Carbonara and I had the Fluke. Wine great, cocktails great. That said, when you go, these items may not even be on the menu, which is printed daily, based upon what is farmed. When the oysters are delivered, the server tells which is which, and leaves you a list, in order, of which is which. OK, maybe that's pretty typical (it is) of restaurants where fresh oysters is a main attraction, so let's talk about the service itself. Very fluid, there is a main server and 1-2 additional "helpers," for lack of a better word, which made up the team who made sure we had the best experience ever. My business guest's phone was nearly battery drained, and the server took the phone and his charger and charged it for him during our meal.
The environment is modern/rustic...very comfortable, great lighting.
I say, " go, and go often."
I can't wait to return
