Eventide Fenway a sleek setting for seafood lovers

Where to Eventide Fenway, the Boston outpost of Portland, Maine’s bivalve haven — a rite of passage for every northbound seafood lover.

What for Oysters, crudo, brown butter lobster rolls, lobster stew, and soft-serve in the heart of the newly gentrifying Fenway. This is a consolidated version of Portland’s fancier restaurant in a counter-service setting — though there are servers available to fetch more food should you need a refill or second helpings after settling in.

The scene Sleek and spacious, with floor-to-ceiling windows and light blue walls — on approach, you’d swear you were entering the Apple store. Stools and counters overlook bustling Boylston Street; there are also a few longer tables and stools without views. Order from a series of flat screens at the entrance, beneath which a friendly server stands, device at the ready, to take orders. You’ll receive a text when your food is ready. Pick everything up at a rock-walled counter topped with oysters on ice, and then relax: There’s mellow guitar music on the speakers, and you’ll (almost) forget the bustle on the other side of the glass.
