Mare oyster bar, North end, Boston, USA

Lovely seafood restaurant in little Italy of Boston
 
The little Italy of Boston was very beautiful town on my visiting USA on 2015 spring. There are a lot of lovely restaurant, bar or boutique in the town. There are a lot of street around the hill which has very nice view of Boston harbour. The people who live in this small area are American but very passive and friendly people like Italian.
 
This restaurant was the recommendation of the concierge at my hotel. Around this area, I found a lot of nice bars, liquor shops or Italian food restaurant. It was very cold evening.
 
At first, I found the kitchen area of this restaurant faced on the street. There were less than eight staff who were busily working around.


My first course was oysters from the several points around the East coast of the USA. I was able to choose from the small piece of paper which the details of the oyster species served on my visit were written down. From the list, I had the small meat type of oysters. Each oyster was very nice and I have been able to feel the terroir where the oysters grew up.

The second course was the Kampachi tartar with Yuzu source. Kampachi(勘八) is called as greater amberjack in English. This fish is the very expensive fish and Syusse Uo (出世魚 しゅっせうお Syusse means promotion or success in life, Uo is fish) in Japan. In UK There are several Syusse Uo(s) which means the fish called by different names as they growing larger, as Buri(鰤 ), Suzuki(鱸). Syusse Uo is known as a bringer of good luck in Japan from the meanings: success or promotion. Yuzu ponzu and chili taste was similar to the Yuzu Kosho. The taste of the Yuzu Kosho was salty and hot but it was very nice for Japanese. 
The Last course was the "zuppa di pesce" (soup of seafood). It was excellent taste (I really love this type of soup). The Umami from a lot of seafood as shrimp, mussels, fish(may be parrot fish), clams etc. made nice harmony in one soup. The strong taste of seafood satisfied with my stomach. On one dish, there were enough seafood nicely tasted and beautifully displayed on the dish.
