We’re pretty much obsessed with fish. Grilled, baked, pan-seared, we love it all. So on our quest for a Boston restaurant that has an endless list of formerly-swimming food, we came across the famous New England restaurant McCormick & Schmick’s. While maintaining an upscale atmosphere with its superior service and sea-inspired decor, the menu remains affordable. Despite debating over around five dishes from the menu that lists the exact location where the fish is flown in from, we decided to go for the sesame crusted halibut served over lo mein. Needless to say, there was nothing left on the plate by the end of our meal.
While we revel in our fish obsession, we’re well aware that many people have an equally intense opinion, except its one of disgust. That’s where M & C’s diverse menu of beef options comes into play. If you’re looking for a steak matched with creamy mashed potatoes that taste better than Thanksgiving at your momma’s, McCormick & Schmick’s is the place to be.
Also deserving of a shoutout is the dessert menu, which features everything from cheesecake dripping with blueberry sauce to a chocolate mousse sundae our waitress described as “a bowl of fudge.” Paired with a pinot grigio from the wine list that’s thicker than an issue of Vogue, you’ve got the ideal meal. So no matter whether you’re a fish-lover or hater, be sure to have a meal at McCormick & Schmick’s. You’ll find the evening will go over swimmingly.
