Hallelujah! Boston needed this so badly!
Had a great dinner there last night. Ambiance is beautiful with lovely muted gray-blue tones, oysters were fantastic, lobster roll was generous and tasty with great coleslaw and homemade chips, mussels in almond cream was subtle and delicate with plump, fresh Snug Harbor mussels, lovely fried halibut cheeks were the mini fish and chips I desired that left room for the lobster roe pasta with short ribs--a rich and delicious finish to a great meal. Service was friendly, informed and on-point.
Garret and crew have really hit the nail on the head here, ICOB is approachable enough to send any tourist visiting Boston to while satisfying to the palate of the most discerning foodie. It is great value in comparison to other seafood restaurants, not cheap by any means, but you get what you pay for. Finally, I can recommend a seafood restaurant in Boston, go figure.
