The gist:The team behind Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury, Massachusetts, opened this popular raw bar and shellfish market on the northern end of Washington Avenue.
The food:The handpicked selection of East Coast oysters leans mostly Maine, with sweet Island Creeks also represented. Shucked to order, they pair perfectly with cold glasses of wine and local beer in an airy space that opens up to outdoor seating. Add a Spanish tinned fish plate (served with toasts, mustard, and pickled cabbage), tartine, or tin of caviar for a more substantial meal.
The cost: Oysters go for $1.50, tinned fish run $9-44, and caviar is $70. Wine and beer are $7-12.
How to order: Dine-in and outdoor tables are first come, first served or order takeout on The Shop.
