Good Eats Boston: Moon Bar

Last Saturday we headed out to Moon Bar; a casual and super chill spot in Boston with delicious bites and drinks. The small corner bar serves some amazingly fresh seafood plates and the curated wine selection is on point. Even the hubby was converted to a white wine lover after trying a glass of German Riesling from the menu. Moon Bar is a great choice if you don’t want to spend tons of money but still want to get very good seafood.

One of my favorite items on the menu was the smoked mussel toast made with pumpkin, sage, roasted garlic aioli and sourdough. As a lover of toast with toppings, I would have never thought of mussels on toast but it works very well in this dish. The different textures in each ingredient create the perfect bite.

SWORDFISH SOULVAKI - Moon BarThe Swordfish Soulvaki with garlic, oregano, lemon, cucumber, tomatoes, chickpeas, yogurt and pita is one menu item I simply cannot forget. There was no rubbery and tough texture. It was very tender, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. From the many seafood restaurants I visited, this was best cooked swordfish I have ever tasted.

Another favorite was the the fish tacos. Made with beer battered fish, cabbage slaw, cilantro, red onion pickles and a Thoreau sauce. These tacos are worth trying on your next visit to Moon Bar.

We tried a few other small plates including Poke with Spanish mackerel and a smoked bluefish plate which were all tasty. Overall the food is great and the wine is amazing. I highly recommend Moon Bar if you are in the Boston area.

Because of it’s location, the bar has become a great hang out spot for many locals and visitors staying in the nearby hotels. Moon Bar is located downstairs from Mooncusser fish house which is already on Boston’s best list for Seafood. The hubs and I plan on going there next time for date night and I can’t wait to try it out.
