Part of the Commonwealth Hotel and under the bar direction of Jackson Cannon (Eastern Standard, The Hawthorne), Island Creek is a big, airy seafood restaurant that gets packed to the gills each evening with guests slurping bivalves. The refreshments list is longer than the actual food menu—which always includes no fewer than a dozen oyster offerings and a seafood casserole the size of your head—and full of seasonal riffs on classic cocktails and oyster-friendly sparkling drinks found under the “embarkments” section. The beer and wine lists are also notable.
