Legal Sea Food

Perhaps you know the concept of "legal seafood." The waiter explained that the establishment has their own inspectors who meet the fishing boats directly, so that the lucky customer could count on the freshest seafood possible. I counted on it with the Boston scrod and was pleased. It was delicious and reasonably priced at about $16. My friend, who doesn't like seafood, found many chicken dishes to choose from and found his delicious, and we both enjoyed healthy fresh steamed vegetables. Altogether, dinner was a pleasant sidewalk experience serenaded by violin, so forget noise from the street, which is mostly a walkway for humans, anyway. There is a bar and a good wine list, but we didn't imbibe.

Aside from the food, we chose this restaurant because there are tables outside, where we could enjoy the fresh air and see all that was going on at Long Wharf. Tour buses and ferries to the Charlestown Navy Yard are all stationed right across the street, and we, having just arrived in Boston, were content to watch them come and go. We were happy here observing the activity, but later we found the more secluded Rowe's Wharf, totally away from any noise from the street. Still, Legal Sea Food is a convenient and delicious stop before or after a bus tour or ferry ride.
