Down by Kings in Back Bay, SUMMER SHACK prepares New England–style seafood inspired by a patriarch of the Boston food scene. Celebrity chef Jasper White grew up in Jersey, bringing his passion for seafood to Boston in 1979. Two decades later, he opened the original Summer Shack in 2000 across the street from Alewife. White busted into the scene with flair, introducing the culinary cutting-edged pan-roasted lobster. This guru has four cookbooks to his credit, so you can create the signature dishes at home.
