Artisan Bistro is one of Downtown Crossing’s most sophisticated restaurants and has tons of delightful, locally sourced, seafood dishes to choose.  

Fan Favorite: Lobster Tacos

If you’re looking for a great way to start off a special seafood dinner, look no further than the infamous lobster tacos! Fresh and flavorful lobster meat packed inside mini taco shells is a tasty creation like no other.

Customer Review: “Our table shared the lobster tacos, which were small, but delicious. Miniature finger-food sized tacos that pack a punch with flavor. And lobster in November? Hells to the yes on that one.”

Customer Review: “Absolutely delectable!” and “Linguini and trio of clams is a lemony perfection.”



Marliave is Boston’s fourth oldest restaurant. For more than 100 years they have served some of the freshest French and Italian inspired seafood cuisine you can find in Boston.

Fan Favorite: Happy Hour Oysters

Marliave’s happy hour oysters is a meal and a deal that you cannot miss! Come by between the hours of 4 and 6 pm and then again from 9 and 10 pm to dive into their endless, half-off oysters.

Customer Review: “DOLLAR and fifty cent OYSTERS WIN! Marliave does not give you partially shucked, slimy, sandy oysters just because you came for their happy hour oysters. I appreciate that :)”
