    Going to be in Boston for half a day on Friday, was hoping to get into Neptune Oyster for dinner. Any tips for getting in and getting a table? If we go pretty early like at 5:00 will we be able to get a table or is that always going to be a 3 hour wait?


    If not Neptune, is there another seafood restaurant you would recommend for dinner?

    Not sure if this will be helpful for dinner, but we went for lunch back in June. Small line when we got there, but we were able to give our phone number in order to receive a text when a table was ready. So - if you go in knowing there could be a wait and have the time, give your number then go for a drink or a wander around the North End. The wait was worth it!!

    There is a place in the South End of downtown called B&G Oysters. This place is owned by Barbara Lynch, who has a small collection of good places in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed this place. Great raw bar and no meat or poultry on the menu, just various seafood creations. Cool location also.

    Thanks, that's what were gonna do. Get there an hour early, put our name down and then wander around the neighborhood for a bit.

    (Full disclosure--this is my cousin Leslie's daughter Laura's joint...)

    But I wouldn't post here unless it was good. And Bagel Bar is that. Where we in Chicago or even in New York City consider high-quality bagels to be part of the fabric of daily life, it's not so much the case north of Boston. They love their 'Dunkin' here, but that establishment's bagels frankly are little more than edible.

    Bagel Bar's NY-style bagels pass the test--the glossy crunch on the outside, soft bread on the inside, it all holding ground when toasted. Pictured are a chicken salad (with cranberries & walnuts) sandwich on an onion bagel, then my Nova lox with tomato and Chelsea Fire (well-known local hot sauce) cream cheese on an everything bagel. Mine had that rare perfect-proportion feng shui, every ingredient in concert--the sandwich as a whole rivaled what I've savored at New York Bagels & Bialys in Skokie or my other fave, Ess-A-Bagel in midtown Manhattan.

    Their coffees keep the bar set high as well, with a nitrogen draft system on tap serving up signature and cold brew concoctions. But their locally-sourced joe holds its own as well, fresh & clean-tasting.

    Given the pandemic, Bagel Bar is not alone in incorporating a keen online ordering & paying system that is simple even for those of a certain age, and Laura--a 3rd-generation Boston restaurateur--and workers will run the orders out to your vehicle upon arrival. This is a perfect location on constantly busy Rte. 3 for quick satisfaction & high quality throughout.

    UNABLE TO ATTACH IMAGES, WILL DO LATER!
