Hospitality maven Garrett Harker, seafood chef extraordinaire Jeremy Sewall and innovative oystermen Skip Bennett and Shore Gregory are the dream team behind these bastions of classically prepared, elegantly presented New England seafood in Kenmore Square and Burlington. Great raw bar, fried clams, oyster sliders, lobster rolls, steamed littlenecks and clam chowder are all here, rounded out with a fabulous bar program and cossetting service. It’s impeccably sourced shore food done with uncommonly high style.
