A showpiece of the renovated Kenmore Square, this nightclub-slick seafood palace is the latest project of local restaurateur Michael Schlow (Radius, Via Matta). The cavernous main dining room has a circular raw bar, where scallop-and-lobster ceviche and a daily changing selection of sashimi are served alongside the Wellfleet and Duxbury oysters. Entrées put a modern, multi-culti spin on super-fresh fish and shellfish; roasted monkfish is paired with a rich truffled spaetzle and cubes of mellow, pumpkinlike kuri squash; panko-crusted cod is paired with house-made spicy chorizo.

 

Tip: Ask to be seated in the smaller, less clamorous second dining room, known in-house as “The Aquarium.”
