Select Oyster Bar is a Back Bay seafood restaurant and oyster bar that focuses only of a few dishes but does them very well. The ceviche is great and the warm lobster roll is near the upper tier of Boston’s lobster rolls. It’s a nice option for a casual mid-week dinner, but It’s also open during the day, making it a great place to escape to after you blow off the 2 o’clock meeting you weren’t going to participate in anyway.
