Changes Come to the Barking Crab on Boston's Waterfront
A popular seafood spot along Fort Point Channel on the Boston waterfront is making some changes, and it could be due at least in part to the new general manager of the place.
The Restaurant Hub blog of the Boston Globe is reporting that the Barking Crab has added a raw bar to the restaurant and is also reducing its menu by half, with the focus now being on seafood found in the local area, including Cape Cod clams, Maine lobster, Rhode Island squid, and Atlantic scrod. The article mentions that $1 oysters will be offered at the raw bar, and local beers will be available as well, including those from the nearby Harpoon Brewery. The new general manager--Ben Korman--could be behind at least some of these changes, with Korman coming from Jasper White's Summer Shack, according to the blog.
The address for the Barking Crab is: Barking Crab, 88 Sleeper Street, Boston MA, 02210. Its website can be found at http://www.barkingcrab.com/
