One thing that is most definitely synonymous with New England is good seafood. And at the heart of the New England is the state of Massachusetts. While there are several great local seafood restaurants throughout the Bay State, only one can come away with the title of the best seafood restaurant in Massachusetts. So, which one has earned that type of praise?

The travel and food publication '24/7 Tempo' released its list of the Best Seafood Restaurants in Each State this Summer. The lists took its research with the help of such food publications like 'Food Network', 'Eat This Not That', 'Eater', and more. As a result, we now know what these places are saying about what makes a joint become the best seafood restaurant in Massachusetts.

It shouldn't really be a shock to anyone in the Bay State that the best seafood restaurant in Massachusetts is a spot that's closer to the coastline. You would find that in Boston's North End. The spot is Neptune Oyster.

Based on the collective take from the aforementioned food publication research, here's what '24/7 Tempo' had to say about Neptune Oyster being named the best seafood restaurant in Massachusetts:

This intimate high-end oyster bar in Boston’s North End may draw long lines, but the wait is worth it. Start with a raw bar platter or perhaps a scallop crudo or johnnycake topped with honey butter, smoked bluefish, and sturgeon caviar. For an entree, choose between such offerings as spicy cioppino with shellfish saffron rice, whole mackerel with Basque pepper stew and fennel, or sea scallops with fava beans, pancetta, and kelp butter.

As you can tell, Neptune Oyster has several unique seafood dishes that look pretty amazing. You can even take a look at their full menu on their website at the link provided here. If you're a fan of seafood, you know have one more must-try joint to add to your list if you haven't already. Especially if it's being called the best seafood restaurant in Massachusetts.
