Elm Square Oyster Co. is a fun, fresh, and exciting restaurant serving brilliantly creative seafood and American dishes. The focus is on local and seasonal ingredients which our chef Michael Sherman artfully and tastefully blends to create ESOC's interpretation of “New” New England cuisine. ​ We are a scratch kitchen, making all of our sauces, seasonings, and condiments from scratch. Everything from the ketchup to the ground beef, soups to sea salt. We even make our own raisins and pickles! ​ We work closely with local fishermen, farmers, distillers and brewers to provide a unique dining experience for our guests. It is this attention to quality and detail that earned us the Best of the Northshore General Excellence Award. Behind the bar, we embrace everything that is great about American craft beverages. Our bar features a wide variety of American and imported wines, small batch spirits & local craft beers from some of the best craftsmen in America.
