18 Central Oyster Bar & Grill
4. 18 Central Oyster Bar & Grill
(19)
$$$$
Oyster Bar | Rockport, Maine, Maine

18 Central is exactly the kind of eatery that should thrive on the midcoast: it’s unpretentious and focuses on core ingredients beloved by most.
Reminiscent of old-school Boston steakhouses, with its dark wood and high ceiling, 18 Central is the perfect home for Chef Duffy’s cuisine. At the far end of the long bar, the fires of an open kitchen flicker.
The raw bar offers a daily selection of pristine oysters from Maine and elsewhere, served with a choice of mignonettes, a multi-dimensional scallion-ginger that benefits from a nip of fish sauce and cilantro. The wood-grilled-tomato cocktail sauce, with its deep, rich flavor and lingering burn, will most likely prompt a second order of the plump cocktail shrimp.
An impressive wine list that emphasizes refreshing, high-acid wines that make good companions to rich food. Bottles to complement selections from the raw bar include classics like Muscadet, Picpoul de Pinet, and Bordeaux Blanc, as well as modern wines

Discover Boston

Beantown, dubbed for the baked beans that put the city on the map, is about far more than beans these days. Local restaurants channel the region’s farm-to-table traditions and celebrate the iconic seafood of New England’s coast—no trip to the region is complete without a proper lobster (pronounced “lob-stah,” steamed and served with butter and corn on-the-cob), freshly shucked oysters, fried clams—you name it. Hometown to a handful of internationally influential female restaurateurs and the inimitable legacy of Julia Child, who called Cambridge home, Boston will always be a city where liberal sensibilities meet a global approach, in politics and on the plate.
