Tapas Thursdays at Turner’s
Thirsty Thursdays no more; instead try Tapas Thursdays at Turner Fisheries! The restaurant is bright with 7 foot high French café windows overlooking Copley Square but balanced with mahogany tones on the walls and hardwood floors. Contemporary décor with nautical subtleties in the artwork make for soothing, beautiful backdrop as opposed to other noisy, packed Thursday watering holes. The lounge is large offering plenty of high back bar stools along with multiple high top tables and booths. It was very comfortable.
On the menu, a selection of New England Style Tapas to include: grilled oysters, scallop ceviche and New England striped bass escabeche (ranging from $5 – $7 per piece). These delights are paired with a selection of Spanish wines to include Los Rocas, Garnacha and Martin Codax, Tempranillo ($10). My favorite was the bold and spicy, Las Rocas VinasViejas ($12)– it smelled of vanilla and pepper and paired beautifully with the tapas. The bartender was informative and friendly. All in all the change of scenery was nice, the food was fresh and the wine selection was vast.
If tapas aren’t your thing, Turner’s offers other promotions during the week to include: Sustainable Fish Mondays where you can enjoy a different sustainable catch each week,
Lobster Wednesday where you can feast on a 2 lb. lobster for $35 and $1 Oysters on Fridays!
