THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN THE BOSTON SEAPORT
With so many great dining options in Boston’s Seaport, it can be a challenge determining the best places to grab a bite. The list below breaks down your top options by the type of experience you are looking for and provides our recommendations for the best spots to eat.
1. The Best Restaurant to Take a Date: Strega Waterfront
The Varano Group’s top notch Italian eatery with waterfront views and a great patio for the nicer weather. The Seaport's Strega Waterfront offers a spectacular wine list paired with hearty authentic Italian food. The menu also offers lighter fare (for earlier on in the dating game) and an intimate bar area with music just loud enough to still allow for conversation.
2. The Best Restaurant to Grab a Pie: Babbo
Occupying 8,700 square feet in the Fan Pier area of the Seaport, this wood-fired pizzeria offers great atmosphere and even better food. Three different marble topped bars provide plenty of space to meet for a drink while you decide which of the many Neopolitan-style pizzas you plan to try.
3. The Best Restaurant for Apps and Drinks: Envoy’s Lookout Rooftop
This lounge has incredible views of the city while offering amazing craft cocktails featuring “small-batch distilleries, rock-star brewers and single vineyard labels.” The food rivals the top-notch drink selection, so whether it’s a small group or a larger after work crowd, Lookout Rooftop is where you want to be.
4. The Best Restaurant for BBQ: The Smoke Shop Seaport
World BBQ Champion Chef Andy Husbands takes his Kendall Square concept and brings it to The Seaport in his newest endeavor. With all of your favorite competition style BBQ platters and over 200 American whiskeys offered, The Smoke Shop is an essential stop.
5. The Best Restaurant for Steak: Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse
Located on Liberty Wharf with spectacular harbor views, the ambience is set for a great meal and Del Frisco’s delivers. If you are in the mood to indulge and most likely over-eat, this is your spot. Forget The Seaport, this could be the best steak in all of Boston.
