You can definitely eat seafood after Labor Day. As far as we’re concerned you can also wear white but we can sense a chill in the air and you need to get your last seafood fix of summer in before PSL (pumpkin spice latte) season kicks into full gear. We’ve mapped out a Labor Day seafood trail in Boston for you to follow. It covers all the essentials and one thing you may have never tried. You’ll surely satisfy your seafood craving even if you just hit one of the places on this list, but we encourage you to try them all! Patriotic clothing also encouraged.
Fried Lobster & Waffles from Saltie Girl
This tiny space is a breath of fresh air on the seafood front. They offer one of the largest tinned seafood collections in the city, along with a full raw bar, the classics, and some new spins on how seafood is served. Everything is super fresh and packed with flavor. To start the day out right have a plate of the fried lobster and waffles with sweet corn butter and spicy maple syrup for breakfast. This is the ultimate indulgence and every bite should be savored. We bet you’ve never had anything like this before.
Address: 281 Dartmouth St, Boston, MA 02116
Fried Clams from Morse Fish Company
Morse is a seafood dealer that opened in 1903 and is one of the oldest fish markets in Boston. The current owners, John and George, are brother-in-laws and their kids work in the shop too. You can take fish home or order off their eat-in menu. They fry everything but the fried clams have stolen our heart. Crispy batter clings on to soft clam bellies—It’s a MUST HAVE, great for an afternoon snack if you ask us.
Address: 1401 Washington St, Boston, MA 02118
Lobster Roll from LTK
Legal Test Kitchen (LTK), located in the Seaport District of Boston, is a member of the Legal Sea Foods portfolio. They serve fresh, innovative seafood dishes that are cooked to perfection. For a great lunch stop by for their famous lobster roll, made with huge pieces of lobster that are jam-packed inside a buttery, toasted roll. Heaven is definitely paved in lobster shells.
Address: 225 Northern Avenue, Boston, MA 02210
Clam Chowder from The Warren Tavern
Take a pit stop for a clam chowder appetizer before dinner paired with some American history at The Warren Tavern, where our founding fathers once dined. This establishment, located on a cozy street in Charlestown, has been standing in the same spot since 1780 and is one of the most historic taverns in America. They make mouth-watering clam chowder, the real stuff….traditional CHOWDA. For an extra bonus, they also make lobster mac & cheese, so if there’s room definitely try it! And if you don’t have room, try it anyway.
Address: 2 Pleasant St, Charlestown, MA 02129
Lobster Dinner from Yankee Lobster
This family-owned restaurant serves some of the finest and freshest seafood from the boat to the kitchen and right to your table. The Zanti family has been in the fishing business for many generations so we trust them to cook our seafood excellently. They are now operating from their new state-of-the-art facility on Boston’s waterfront. To round out the Labor Day seafood trail we suggest that you head to Yankee Lobster for a traditional lobster dinner, bib and all. If it didn’t get messy it didn’t really happen. Extra melted butter please.
Address: 300 Northern Ave, Boston, MA 02210
