When in Boston, good seafood is pretty much guaranteed. In Saturday night’s case, chef Todd English guaranteed it. English owns several restaurants in the Boston and Las Vegas area. Kingfish Hall is located in Faneuil Hall along the cobblestone walkways.
The restaurant has two floors of dining with an open kitchen. The special fish could be seen rotating on a skewer as I walked upstairs to our shell shaped booth.
We started off with the lump crab cake. It was topped with cherries and a creamy chestnut polenta underneath.
The crabcake wasn’t a typical Maryland style crabcake with a crispy outside coating. Instead, the cake was soft and filled with lump pieces. I went with the short rib ravioli for my main meal. The ravioli was surrounded by diced tomatoes and sauteed mushrooms.
Of course, when in Boston a lobster roll is not hard to come across. Served with a bucket of chips and two dishes of coleslaw and Boston baked beans the entree screamed Bostonian.
There were plenty of chunks of lobster in the crispy roll. Same went for the lobster curry bisque.
Of course if you’re in Boston and don’t want to spend a lot of money you can always take a walk down the Faneuil Hall Market and get a slice of Regina’s Pizza or a cup of soup from the Boston Chowda Company. But if you’re in the mood for some high end seafood then you should take a trip to Kingfish. Even in the twenty degree weather with snow on the ground it’s still worth it.
