Nestled in the heart of Boston is the family-owned and -operated Italian bakery known as Modern Pastry Shop. The bakery is backed by three generations of chefs, and the staff uses Italian recipes that date back more than 150 years. Here, you'll find everything from custom-made wedding cakes, freshly baked pies, and cheesecakes to traditional Italian desserts such as cannoli, tiramisu, and napoleons. The treats are displayed in a glass showcase so that customers can see what it is that they are ordering.
The ambiance is casual and fun as patrons from throughout Boston trickle in to try the desserts. There is plenty of seating available for diners who wish to enjoy their desserts on-site, and the pastries are labeled with prices. Price boards are also on display behind the counter, and gluten-free options such as cookies, muffins, and whoopee pies are also available.
Air Tran’s Go! Magazine named Atlantic Fish Company “One of Boston’s Top 10 Experiences” and one step into the dining room will show you why. With meticulous woodwork and sea-inspired murals, Atlantic Fish Company has an interior that matches its menu.
Atlantic Fish Company’s seafood cuisine is so fresh that the restaurant’s menus are printed daily. The restaurant is known for its baked stuffed Maine lobster and New England clam chowder. It features other classic dishes, including Maine lobster pot pie, and offers such adventurous bites as a signature swordfish chop, smoked salmon pate, and barbecue-glazed salmon. The restaurant’s signature raw menu allows guests to choose from a number of shellfish and oysters and also includes iced littleneck clams. The staff at Atlantic Fish Company also created a wine list to compliment menu items with reds, whites, and blushes available by the glass or half-bottle.
