Apparently, a lot of the best seafood restaurants in Boston use Red’s Best as their wholesaler. That should give you some incentive to head to the counter they operate in the Public Market. It’s primarily a place to buy filets and shellfish to cook yourself, but they have a small selection of things like lobster rolls, crab cakes, and stuffed quahogs that, if you work in the area, you should be eating for lunch at least once a week.
