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.

Nantucket Brings The Nautilus restaurant to Boston

The Boston Seaport District is known for some of the best seafood restaurants in the city – for good reason. With direct access to the harbor, the local eateries in this area can get their goods fresh directly from the source. In the spring of 2020, this trendy neighborhood will welcome The Nautilus restaurant from Nantucket, which will be housed in the stylish Pier 4 Seaport luxury condo building. 

Nautilus Pier 4 promises to be more than just another seafood restaurant. It will bring a one-of-a-kind taste of Nantucket to Boston. The restaurant is known for flavor-packed plates that incorporate Asian and Latin American influences into traditional New England dishes. Favorites include Berkshire pork belly buns with herb salad and coffee mayo, tempura-fried East Coast oyster tacos, and a homemade udon noodle soup. Since chef Liam Mackey opened the first location in 2014, the restaurant has become synonymous with innovative, quality cuisine.

The Nautilus will join several other attractive eating and dining options in the Pier 4 building. Cisco Brewers, a Nantucket brewery and distillery, was located in Seaport this past summer and will re-open with a picturesque ice-skating rink in place of their beer garden. Another highlight in the Pier 4 building is Woods Hill, the new farm-to-table waterfront restaurant from Kristin Canty, a farm owner, and restauranteur. 

The Pier 4 luxury construction condo site is the ideal place to enjoy foods and drinks of all kinds. It boasts one acre of green space with water on three sides, access to Harbor Walk, and is just steps from the Institute of Contemporary Art. By combining public spaces and private residences, real estate development firm, Tishman Speyer has curated a true neighborhood feeling in the bustling Seaport District. With The Nautilus arriving in the spring of 2020, the Pier 4 neighborhood will welcome yet another valuable addition to the community.
