Island Creek Oyster Bar, a destination-worthy spot in Kenmore Square, showcases local (and beyond) seafood in a bustling, large dining room and bar kitted out with metal accents and a towering wall comprised of oyster shells. In addition to a daily rotation of oysters, shellfish and crudo from the raw bar, menu offerings include lobster roe noodles with braised short rib and grilled lobster, clam chowder with a buttermilk biscuit "crouton" or New Bedford monkfish in coconut vinaigrette. The bar pours craft beers, a thoughtful, international wine selection and cocktails like the Green Harbor (Green Chartreuse, Cocchi Americano, mint, lime, tonic).
