There’s no shortage of fresh fish in Boston, yet when a new restaurant with an impressive pedigree opens its doors—as The Banks Fish House in the Back Bay did recently—it’s worth taking notice. Brought to us by the team behind such beloved and acclaimed eateries as Grill 23, Harvest and Bistro du Midi, The Banks showcases the bounty from local waters—oysters, lobster rolls and grilled Bluefin tuna to indulgent shellfish towers and humble yet delicious fried seafood—on its two floors. Speaking of which, an intimate raw and cocktail bar dubbed The Top Shell can be found on the upper floor, while the larger Three Sheets Bar serves lively adult beverages and a selection of raw bar treats on the first floor. There are even innovative menu options like “The Chowda,” a flatbread inspired by its namesake New England clam chowder that is topped with clams, bacon, crème fraiche, potatoes and even oyster crackers for extra crunch. Not extravagant enough? Add The Banks’ own house caviar as a topping. And if you’re feeing nostalgic for the late, lamented gastropub Post 390 that previously occupied the space, take heart that such notable and welcoming features as the two fireplaces and excellent views of neighboring Trinity Church remain intact.
