Concierge.com's insider take:
You know a seafood restaurant means business when the menu includes a tower of as many oysters, clams, and shrimp as you and at least five friends can handle (that would be the Neptune Plateau, $95). And you can't go wrong ordering à la carte, either. Choose from 14 types of oysters, steaming New England clam chowder, delicate tuna crudo, and indulgently rich jumbo scallops. The tables and bar stools of this tiny, very popular North End seafood joint fill up between 6 and 6:30 pm, so arrive early or be prepared to wait. When seated, you'll be elbow to elbow with your neighbors, but the vibe is fun.
Open Sundays through Thursdays 11:30 am to 10:30 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 11:30 am to 11:30 pm.
