BOSTON (CBS) – Spring is busy time of year for seafood restaurants, especially on Fridays during Lent. Dan Andelman of the Phantom Gourmet goes fishing for some top quality meals.
Annabelle’s Restaurant in Hyde Park offers classic American cuisine in a casual ‘come as you are’ type setting. Annabelle’s fisherman’s platter, piled with shrimp, haddock, scallops, and fried clams, will feed the whole boat.
