The Barking Crab 2017 Opening Party

          The Barking Crab is a quintessential Boston restaurant, located right on the water in the seaport district. It has the feel of a seafood shack with long wooden benches and a tent covering the outdoor seating area, but the fun atmosphere in the bar also makes it a great spot to go out with friends for a drink. I went in for dinner last summer, and was excited to attend the opening party this year to kick off the season!

           We started with one of the signature cocktails, the red tide made with vodka, elderflower, and grapefruit. It was light and refreshing, and perfect for summer!

           There was a raw bar set up with tons of fresh oysters  and jumbo shrimp. I definitely made a few stops to load up on both!

           There were also plenty of passed hors d' oeuvres like these tomato and mozzarella skewers and amazing mini lobster rolls that went so fast I wasn't able to snap a pic!

           In addition to the raw bar, The Barking Crab is also known for the fried clams, classic New England clam chowder, steamed lobsters, and hot and cold lobster rolls. I definitely plan to make it back in for dinner before the summer is over!
