Liv’s Oyster Bar
Here’s the crazy thing: I love Liv’s and I haven’t yet spread the word to e list readers. Shame on me. From our favorite hostess (Anna Maria) to our favorite waitress (Jackie) to always finding John (the chef/owner) in his kitchen, everything about Liv’s lives up to John’s exacting standards. Try the New England clam chowder (the real deal) topped with a buttermilk biscuit, crispy calamari with lemon salt, mussels in a wine/shallot/Dijon broth, and that’s just for starters. The fish dishes are excellent, but don’t dismiss the free range roast chicken, either. My summer dinner (pictured): a dozen oysters, Cucumber Cosmo (a refreshing and not-too-sweet version of the classic cocktail) and John’s take on salad Nicoise, garnished with white anchovies. Kid’s menu from $4.75 to $6.75 and oysters are a buck on Wednesdays after Labor Day.

From Liv’s Oyster Bar
The Brescio’s have created an atmosphere of delicious warmth. Dining at Liv’s, whether in the main room, at the bar, or on the patio, is to be part of a family.
