Cdn visitor looking for quality seafood, chowder, seasonal foods(ramps/asparagus/rhubarb. etc) & interesting/innovative salads

So far, the following places are on my shortlist. Mostly interested in Traditional American, New American, and Contemporary/Continental cuisine, but I would be open to other suggestions. I'll probably end up ordering mostly seafood and veg dishes, so no need for steakhouse recs! I'll likely have 4 lunches and 4 dinners in Boston. Right now, I'm hoping to do one early dinner at Neptune Oyster, a dinner at Island Creek Oyster Bar, and possibly one dinner at Locke-Ober.

Completely open to suggestions for other lunches & dinners.

Neptune Oyster for the lobster roll & chowder

Legal's Test Kitchen's chowder While I realize many Hounds don't think much of Legal, but my cousin has been raving about the chowder for years,and I didn't try it on my last visit.

Locke-Ober for the Lobster Savannah, maybe the Sole Meuniere, maybe the Indian pudding. Will Locke-Ober let customers share the Lobster Savannah and/or other dishes on the menu? I realize it's might be seen as gauche, but I thought I'd ask.

Island Creek Oyster Bar- menu looks innovative & interesting. Which dishes do you like the most?

B & G Oysters- for the chowder, and fried oysters and/or fried Ipswich clams.

Flour Bakery- what do you think they do the best?

Are there any dishes that you'd recommend at the places I've mentioned? Any dishes I should avoid?

Are there any restaurants you'd recommend for innovative salads?
