Saltie Girl

An homage to the salty seas of Boston’s ports, Saltie Girl serves seafood in every which way, from canned to raw, oysters to lobster, local to international. A boutique selection of aesthetically packaged fish will make you rethink anchovies and tuna as a culinary delight. Refreshing and light concoctions like coconut milk cocktails are served from chilled pails affixed to each table.
