Barking Crab

88 Sleeper Street, Boston, MA 02210, USA


See Website

An urban clam shack with incomparable views of the skyline, the restaurant sits on Fort Point Channel across from the financial district and has an authentic New England atmosphere, complete with gruff service, rough picnic tables and a smattering of tough locals. On a warm afternoon or evening, this is a classic spot to pass the time over messy lobster rolls and ice-cold beers. In the summer, some diners arrive by boat, the small sails contrasting with the soaring skyscrapers across the channel. But even in the winter, the Crab remains open. When the wind dies down and the sun comes out, a February afternoon may suddenly feel like springtime.
