Redding is certainly sitting on the dock of the bay. That's Mary Redding, not Otis. Instead of watching the tide wash away and wasting time, the Mary's Fish Camp owner is eyeballing the massive lineups outside her tiny upscale seafood shack, trying to find a way to defy physics so everyone can fit. Named after a Florida campground, this little eatery that could boasts a decor that reminds many diners of the interior of a bait and tackle box: sleek, simple and functional. There's a countertop and a few tables, but the real hook is the exceptional food. Formerly of Pearl Oyster Bar, Redding reels in lobster rolls, salmon filets and whole black tilapias like an expert New England fisherman. Go light at lunch with cod or sardine sandwiches and gazpacho, when you also have a better chance at snagging a table. If you do opt for dinner, be warned: reservations are not accepted.
