761 Boylston St.
Boston, MA

Newbury St. and Boylston St. are located in the Back Bay of Boston which means parking is nearly impossible. Lucky for us, we were able to find street parking on Newbury St (we were about to pay for a parking lot that was $13 per 30 min). My mom calls Newbury St. the “Rodeo Dr. of Boston.”

When we walked in, we immediately felt under-dressed even though we were here for lunch.  But our waittress was so laid back and nonchalant that we were put at ease about our wardrobe and enjoyed an extremely nice meal.


the complimentary bread dish came out right away and we were so pleased that it was warm! and the butter was spreadable! double kudos to AFC!

Not only was the clam chowder stupendously creamy, but the sourdough used for the bread bowl was not overpowering the soup. Usually I’m not a big fan of sourdough because I feel like it has too strong of its own sour tendencies. This was not the case here where the sourdough blended in the background of the award winning New England clam chowder.

My friend ordered the sea-bass fresh fish pan-seared. The freshness was clearly evident from the first bite. Although there wasn’t much flavoring, it was still pretty good.

When I dug into my crabcake, I was expecting it to be mostly breadding or some other filler. With my first forkful, I could immediately see that the entire thing was all crabmeat. It was glorious! Especially when combined with the tartar sauce, my tastebuds could sing! The sides for both dishes weren’t that spectacular but we knew that this place was known for its “chowda” and seafood so we were extremely pleased on that agenda!

Crab cakes!
