2016 Winner: Island Creek Oyster Bar

Duxbury-harvested Island Creek oysters are ubiquitous on menus across Boston, but somehow, they still taste best on their home turf. And the local bivalve brand’s sparkling Kenmore Square seafood restaurant offers a dozen other oft-changing selections on any given day, most from New England waters and all impeccably presented—so whether you’re a connoisseur refining your sense of merroir or just looking to graduate beyond buck-a-shucks, you’ll slurp with satisfaction.
