Just in time for the weekend, you can now find a blue plate special at several fine dining restaurants throughout the Boston area. But wait, it's not what you think. It's the Aquarium's version of a Blue Plate Special with delicious and ocean-friendly seafood dishes that are selected with our blue planet in mind!
The Aquarium and seven top Boston area restaurants are taking part in a six-week Blue Plate Special program to help diners learn about the plentiful and delicious choices available on menus that are ocean-friendly. Choosing ocean-friendly seafood means we will have plenty of tasty seafood choices for years to come by choosing ocean-friendly seafood today. That's because some types of seafood are much more environmentally friendly than others.
The program, which begins today, is in conjunction with some of the Boston area’s best restaurants, including: Blue Ginger in Wellesley, EVOO in Cambridge, Turner Fisheries Restaurant in Boston, Lumiere in Newton, Area Four in Cambridge, Taranta Restaurant in Boston, and City Landing in Boston.
Diners will learn about the Aquarium’s conservation work and how ocean-friendly seafood options can help protect the ocean and its resources. The Blue Plate Special program will also create ocean advocates and promote responsible restaurants all at the same time.
The program is already making news. So if you're looking to get out on the town this weekend and want to make a thoughtful choice about your meal, check out these local restaurants and their Blue Plate Specials!
