A a collaboration between two lifelong fishermen, restaurateur Chris Himmel and Chef Robert Sisca, The Banks Fish House is a revival of the New England Fish House, with inspired seafood dishes and a fresh take on classic regional fare. The restaurant pays homage to the fishing banks of New England and beyond, where tried-and-true fishing traditions hold great honor and produce abundant bounties.
Located in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay, The Banks offers two floors of seafood-focused dining. The first-floor boasts a 26-seat bar, high top tables, and a working raw bar with seating for 12. The second floor features an open kitchen dining room, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking historic Trinity Church, multiple private dining rooms, two fireplaces, and an oversized horseshoe bar at the center of it all. The space is lively, vibrant and chic with hues of blues to make the two-floor restaurant feel like a welcoming neighborhood seafood destination.
The menu showcases New England-inspired seafood bringing the bounty of the ocean to the plate with the finest sustainable seafood from well-managed fisheries treated with uncompromising respect. The menu has lots of mainstays like lobsters, oysters, scallops, halibut and more exotic fishes like razor clams, uni and Dover Sole. There are plenty of New England seafood favorites like baked stuffed lobsters, clam chowder, fried clams and lobster rolls alongside an extensive selection of crudo, caviar, and raw bar options. For the land-lovers, there will also be a variety of non-seafood options, too. The beverage program at The Banks is a carefully curated selection of beers, wines, cocktails and mocktails created by the Himmel Hospitality Group’s award-winning team of experts.
