Friday night, I had the pleasure of visiting the newly opened Row 34 in the evolving Waterfront district.
Row 34 is the latest hotspot brought to you by restauranteur and hospitality mastermind, Garrett Harker and company (owners of Eastern Standard, Island Creek Oyster Bar, The Hawthorne).
Naturally, one would have high expectations of Row 34 given that Harker's other locations have become Boston landmarks. The verdict? Expectations were completely surpassed and how!
Let me start by saying Row 34 is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. The space is huge and filled perfectly. The high ceilings offer a very loft-y, New York feeling. The Sheffields (interior-design power couple) have done it again - the decor is flawless! Check out their work www.sheffieldinteriors.com
The menu satiates every seafood lover's appetite. Fresh oysters, succulent crab cakes, Pinot Grigio all served out of an open kitchen - what more could one ask for?
Row 34 is a fabulous place for wining, dining, and mingling. Legal Harborside is going to have some stiff competition with the opening of Row. The quality of service is not even comparable.
I highly recommend checking out Row 34, especially if you LOVE oysters like I do - you will not be disappointed!
PS: If you're driving, park at the Stilling Street Garage around the corner - Row will validate for you!
