Disappointing....B & G Oysters

bklynlinda | Nov 4, 2006 11:55 PM

Since B & G seemed to get such great reviews on this board, we ate there on one of our 2 nights in Boston, visiting from NY. The fried oyster app was ok, a bit on the salty side. But the lobster roll was ice cold as if it was just taken from the fridge, and as a result lacked the expected sweet lobster flavor - and the fries were soggy. It was especially disappointing being in New England and expecting a great seafood dinner. Someone on the board said it was similar to NYC's Pearl, but I have to say it's no contest - Pearl's lobster roll is a couple of bucks cheaper and in a different league - sweet tasty lobster, perfect dressing and the fries rule.

We were also blown away by the incredible high cost of your good restaurants.
