S1 EP 2: Fin to Tail (with Jeremy Sewall)

Credit: Michael Piazza

Jeremy Sewall is a New England seafood star. His professional cooking career began, fittingly, in Maine, at the Relais & Châteaux Grace White Barn Inn. After accumulating experience in a range of prestigious restaurants, from Boston’s L’Espalier to kitchens in London and Amsterdam—plus a West Coast stint at Lark Creek Inn in Larkspur, California—Sewall returned to Boston in 2006 to open Lineage in Brookline with his wife Lisa, a pastry chef. The couple ran the neighborhood favorite for a decade before its closing in 2016 . Today, he and partners Skip Bennett, Garrett Harker and Shore Gregory run Island Creek Oyster Bar (with locations in Kenmore and Burlington), and Row 34 restaurants in Fort Point and Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

The guy behind the kitchens at Row 34 and Island Creek Oyster Bar obviously makes a mean lobster roll (Are you camp butter or mayo?), and no one knows how to build a better oyster list. Chef Jeremy Sewall is a bona fide expert on New England seafood, with the experience—and family lineage—to back it up. Find out what fish we should be eating right this second (seasonality isn’t just for tomatoes, people), and why Jeremy thinks the term “sustainable seafood” is kind of a copout.
