The Best Restaurants In The Boston Seaport

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.

Boston No Fee Luxury Apartments: Complete List of No Fee Luxury Apartment Buildings

 

It's that time of year again when prospective tenants are looking for new homes. Whether you are looking to move as soon as possible or by September 1st, the fees associated with signing a new lease and moving expenses pile up quickly. Typical apartment leases in Boston require four payments up front, these include: 1) First Month's Rent; 2) Last Month's Rent; 3) Security Deposit; 4) Broker Fee. The amount of the security deposit and broker fee can vary, but more often than not, you are coming out of pocket for four payments, each equal to one month's rent. For an average priced 2 bedroom unit in Boston, this could add up to $16,000 or more. Don't cringe yet, Elevated's leasing team places clients in full service buildings where the costs are FAR LESS burdensome. Most of the new buildings in Boston only require a $500 deposit to hold a unit and first month's rent upon move in. They also pay your broker! Let us save you $10,000+! Take a look at our comprehensive list of buildings in the South End, South Boston, the Seaport and Boston Landing that are currently offering specials and paying full fee.
