Union Oyster House
41 Union StreetBoston, MA 02108
So the foodscapade adventure in Boston continues, and it just keeps getting better! My folks really wanted some good seafood, so I decided to to bring them to Union Oyster House (it was packed the last time I was there on a Friday). Lucky for us, it was a weeknight and they had a table for us, but the place was still pretty crowded, and that got us a little excited. This historic restaurant, which have been serving the community since 1826, has a old England charm to it, which I think really allow patrons to immerse in the restaurant's vibrant history and reputation. By the time we were greeted by our server and seated, we were all ready for some fresh seafood.
|Lobster Ravioli, in lobster cream with sherry and fresh herbs US$14.95|
|New England Hardshell LARGE lobsters US$49|
|Lobster Scampi, medium lobster sautéed in garlic butter, |
tomatoes, fresh herbs and white wine served on a bed of linguine US$29.95
Nevermind that this restaurant is packed with tourists, in fact I think it prouds itself as a tourist destination where everyone needs to visit when they are in Boston. Union Oyster House definitely lives up to its reputation of serving patrons the best seafood. The freshly shucked oysters were delectable, and both the Lobster Ravioli and Scampi were definitely winners. The latter had pasta cooked to perfection and the white wine sauce was just heavenly. For the price that you're paying for, I definitely feel that we were getting our value for money. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who finds themselves in the city, and make sure you put on one of those bibs provided by the restaurant just in case it gets too messy!
