I'm a Toronto CH and will be visiting Boston. I was hoping to have dinner at Neptune Oyster (lots written here, it sounds so good!), with 3 people on a Sunday night, around 8pm. I'm wary of the no reservations policy, though - we don't want to be waiting in line, hungry, for a long time. We won't have a car and will be in the North End (and don't know the city well) so easy to walk to is best, if we have to take the T-line that might be OK.
Is Neptune Oyster typically really busy at 8pm on Sunday? Are there other similar places (good raw bar, good, fresh, simple seafood, Bostonian) you'd recommend that are close and easy to get to? How does Kingfish Hall compare? (Not looking to go to Legal Seafood - I'd prefer a place that's not part of a chain). I'd go to Neptune in a heartbeat but am really worried about the no reservations thing. Thanks in advance.
