Kingfisher has won the Best Seafood category for as long as we can remember, which should vouch for the restaurant's quality and consistency. This local landmark offers full-bodied dinners with an outstanding oyster bar, and a lighter lunch menu. Regular items include clam chowder, grilled sea bass, ruby trout, Atlantic salmon, clams, mussels and more. For confirmed landlubbers, there are Caesar, spinach and other salads; baby-back pork ribs; and the Kingfisher burger. There are ever-changing seasonal specialties, so repeat visits will always offer something new. The wine list is extensive and well-thought out; it repeatedly receives Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence. Don't be surprised if we have to write about them again next year—assuming we're all still around.
