Catch a local favorite at Boston spots this Restaurant Week (aka Dine Out Boston). Chefs are getting fresh with a variety of cod dishes with seasonal accompaniments. The great white fish comes baked with capers, pan-roasted with malt vinegar aioli and braised with corn salsa. You can also find it with an Italian touch – fennel sausage and cannellini beans – or a Basque treatment – chorizo and piquillos. See below for the must-have sea-faring plates this summer.
