Oyster Bars: B&G is a South End treasure by famed chef Barbara Lynch. Located below street level, B&G boasts a simple setting that allows diners to focus on the fabulous food. Oysters are the star here, so order up. The enclosed garden patio takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood and transports you into a garden sanctuary. Check off your favorites, or order new ones from the list that circulates; start with a dozen then explore further because these briny treasures should be icy cold upon consumption. Make a meal of your oysters or sample the other options from this South End eatery that's been drawing crowds for years.

Seafood: A sleek, stylish raw bar that owes its success to the visions of owner Barbara Lynch, who is quite the celebrity chef in the Boston area, is what sets B&G apart from the pack. The sub-level space is subtly (that is, unpretentiously) contemporary, featuring blue and gray tiles, stainless steel elements, and an open kitchen. The raw bar eats are fronted by fresh local oysters, clams, scallops and shrimp. Meanwhile, creative main courses like bacon-wrapped cod, wild striped bass with squid puttanesca, and Italian fish stew are themselves superbly done. Patio dining is available during the warm seasons on their own private oasis that is engulfed with greenery to make you feel extra special.
