Our Review

Neither the menu nor the decor at this long-standing seafood restaurant has changed much since it opened in 1933. The rustic yet refined room inside the Drake Hotel still features red-checkered tablecloths, weather vanes, and stuffed fish. The menu includes standard appetizers like New England clam chowder, oysters Rockefeller, and raw oysters, along with the famous Bookbinder Red Snapper Soup served with a shot of sherry. Most fish dishes stick to classic preparations--Dover sole meuniere, for example, is filleted tableside. Service is always attentive and professional.
