Best seafood in Boston

A second vote for Neptune Oyster, one of the best lobster rolls in the city and their menu all around is amazing. I would skip legal, the atmosphere is underwhelming as well as the food. If you're looking for best seafood overall, I'd recommend Woodman's in Essex (a little out of the city, but totally worth the drive). All around best place for whole lobster, steamers, fried oysters etc (apparently Best seafood in america according to forbes magazine?). Pick your own in front, they throw it in a big pot and comes out with bibs and red plastic trays. Best onion rings I've had in my life.

What Cookbooks Would You Recommend To Others?

The Zuni Cafe cookbook. It's beautifully written and talks a lot about why they do certain things in addition to providing a wonderful range of recipes. I've only skimmed through it, but ad hoc at home by Thomas Keller looks intriguing. I agree with the Rick Bayless suggestion above also, his books are fantastic.
