Inspired by the search for the most perfect wines to enjoy with oysters
Executive Wine Director Cat Silirie has created a carefully focused list comprised of approximately 70 wines that pair beautifully with bivalves and with the seasonal seafood dishes served at B&G Oysters
Each of the carefully chosen wines reflects Cat's signature wine qualities of authenticity
seasonality, and tradition as well as terroir or "sense of place," the notion that wines possessing terroir are a natural match for the ingredients and cuisine of their respective native regions. The mission of the wine list that Cat and her team Enthusiastically strive to achieve is to create a selection that exudes these tenets while complimenting the gorgeous seafood served. In addition to Champagne, Chablis, and Muscadet— our favorite pairings with oysters— crisp, mineraly whites and a small number of ocean-friendly reds from Cat's favorite artisanal producers complete the wine offerings
Cat, long a champion of the "new" old Austrian grape, Grüner Veltliner
Is incredibly honored to collaborate with Austrian winemaker Fred Loimer to create the "Cuvée Cat for B&G Oysters" exclusively for our restaurants. With B&G Oysters in mind, this cuvée displays all the hallmarks of a Loimer Grüner Veltliner: extremely fresh, elegant, and accurate to the varietal with classic white pepper spice
The final component of our wine program
Something vital to each of our restaurants, is the staff training program. One of Cat's greatest but most gratifying challenges as the Executive Wine Director of the Barbara Lynch Gruppo is her responsibility to educate all of our staff about wine. Through weekly meetings, Cat and her team train B&G servers on our wines through storytelling, tasting, and testing

I heard B&G had a good lobster roll. And they do. A generous size, very tasty roll that features the lobster. Served with a huge side of very good hot fries. Had wonderful oysters to start off.

We sat at the bar and watched $3,20 (each) oysters being expertly shucked. We were dying for a real clam roll and were not disappointed. The clams were excellent and fried right before our eyes. Our only complaint was the roll was small, especially considering...More

This is my favorite spot in Boston for a seafood meal. You can’t go wrong with Barbara Lynch, and of course there’s a great wine menu as well. Parking is a bit of a hassle in this neighborhood so plan ahead.

I'm a big fan of lobster rolls and try them everywhere I go. I was really looking forward to this experience and sadly I was disappointed. The establishment was small and pokey and a tad claustrophobic. I couldn’t see what all the fuss is about....More

Go somewhere else. Not worth it. My lobster role was $34. A little too small. I don't get the high rating. Seems over rated.

No lobster roll is worth $34.00 and that is what I willingly paid for one of the ultimate summer treats. Yes, it was very tasty--actually quite an ample amount with a nice mixture of lettuce, celery, & chives in a mayo dressing. That said, I...More

... we simply had to visit this restaurant. What a lovely place and great food, especially the clam chowder and the chocolate mouse with honeycomb, sea salt and olive oil!
