The ground level will house a marketplace, fish counter, and a casual oyster bar — a nod to the restaurant’s simple beginnings. Upstairs, there’s a swanky dining room that hopes to take the trusty chowder ‘n fish formula above and beyond. This menu will spotlight unusual seafood, include more meat items, and offer what owner Roger Berkowitz describes as a “unique wine list.” (Apparently, the Seaport dining room will also be pricier than other locations.) On the third floor, behold: a vast rooftop deck.
