No, it's not near your hotel, but if you're willing to use the Green Line and a short bus ride, this gem of a restaurant in Jamaica Plain (the 'JP' in the name) will reward you with great food at half the price of a Back Bay or harborfront eatery. JP Seafood, in turn, is something of a misnomer. This is a Japanese and Korean restaurant; heavy on the seafood but don't want in and ask for the grouper, because it's not on the menu. What is served is very fresh, very good, and very attractively priced means, ranging from obentos (lunchboxes) to noodle and sushi specialities. The service is excellent, the atmosphere eclectic.

Visited this restaurant for lunch and defihitely exceeded my expectations!
Cozy decore with a big fish tank, masks, and a wall mural of fish.
I ordered the salmon terriayki lunch box which came with 4 pieces of California roll, a big piece of salmon, a small salad, miso ship, two pieces of exquisite fried fish, rice, and a mysterious piece of tasty fish. All that for less than $10!!!! Wow!

Owner Phil takes everything personally, in the very best way. He is fully involved in quality control, and if anything is ever amiss (and it never is, as far as I've seen) I'm sure he acts.

JP has a lot of great places. This is one of the best.

JP Seafood is the go-to place in Jamaica Plain for fresh sushi, seafood and Korean dishes. Go early in the evening with your family or good for dates later in the evening if you're looking for good food in a relaxed atmosphere.

First place my hubby and I went to on Sunday night when we arrived in town. We did eat on the trendy side of the restaurant, with new, fresh, aqua based decor. Sushi was amazing and my husband ordered the Pad Thai. Best we'd ever had!!!....this should for sure be on everyone's list of places to eat when in the area!!....
