Marliave sings of an American dream come true. French immigrant Henry Marliave arrived in the country armed with a collection of closely guarded Francophile recipes that brought his namesake restaurant into the limelight. After weathering various storms, including a number of publicized raids during the Prohibition era, the old French-style joint has emerged as one of Boston’s best. Head to the black-and-white building on Bosworth Street for dollar oysters and clams (available at 4:00PM to 6:00PM and 9:00PM-10:00PM daily) paired with one of Marliave’s creative cocktail concoctions.
