There is no shortage of seafood in Boston, yet when it comes to truly fresh oysters, clams and the like, more is always welcome. Enter Select Oyster Bar (50 Gloucester St., 857-239-8064, selectoyster.com), a newcomer to the Back Bay that promises the best in local and international fare from beneath the waves, including cuttlefish from Spain, sea urchin from Santa Barbara, caviar from Siberia and razor clams from right down the coast in Duxbury. A particular emphasis is placed on Mediterranean flavors, especially in such dishes as the Burgundy escargot and the bouillabaisse. Select also boasts a carefully chosen wine list meant to pair well with its cuisine, as well as a rotating selection of craft beers and Cuban-inspired cocktails. With a combination like that, seats will fill up fast, so head there now—reservations aren’t accepted.
