Location and contact


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

If you can get in, come here for wonderful seafood and oysters! This is a cute, little, casual restaurant in the lower level of a brownstone. (They also have a nice outdoor patio for dining but it was too cold that evening). When we arrived...More

Almost an hour wait. Lobster rolls ranked #2 in Boston. Not a patch on those at Martha’s Vineyard. Did not have the oysters though.

The bar service was excellent. We started with a King Crab and Sweet Potato Salad that was tasty and refreshing. The second course were some of the tastiest fried oysters with a unique tartar sauce that did not overpower the oyster flavor. We shared the...More

This was our first visit to B&G and we were not disappointed. We came primarily for the oysters, which were excellent (although priced higher than at most establishments). Our favourites were the Pemaquid from Maine, but the Beach Plum oysters from Westport, MA, and the...More

Nice place to eat and the food was delicious. The server was attentive and since I only drink organic wine, he suggested one for me and it was the best I’ve had so far. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant.

There always a place I look forward to going when visiting Boston, and it’s B&G Oysters. Over the last five years, the food has been absolutely consistent, fresh, fun, and yes, pricey. But the crispy fresh and briny oyster selection, the popular lobster sandwich (not...More
