Restaurateur Garrett Harker gives Boston just what it wants: the type of unpretentious locale that combines farm-focused food with good drink in an atmosphere where it’s easy to hang out into the wee hours. Following up his now Boston-standard Eastern Standard Kitchen & Drinks, Harker teamed up with Chef Jeremy Sewall to open Island Creek Oyster Bar in 2010. Sewall handles the food end of the equation; juxtaposing bluefin tuna crudo with bright lemon verbena and spicy Fresno chilies, or packing lobster roe into silky noodles. And Mixologist Bob McCoy provides the drink, as in classically inspired cocktails enhanced with farm fresh ingredients (rhubarb-infused vermouth, sage-rosemary-thyme syrup).

Recommended Dishes:
  • Lobster Roe Noodles, Braised Short Rib, Grilled Lobster, Chanterelle Mushrooms, and Pecorino
  • 1822 Cocktail: House-made Rhubarb Vermouth, Knockabout Gin, St. Germain, Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6, and Lemon Garnish
