Come to Mignonette for some of the best oysters in town, plus a lot more very good seafood. It’s a pretty chill spot, good for a weekday dinner or a date where you want to impress, but not look like you’re trying too hard. The space has floor-to-ceiling windows that face the sunset and a bar with a huge marquee behind it that advertises the day’s oyster specials. Start with a dozen of those and then maybe a lobster roll to round things out.
