Summer-Safe Nights Out in the Seaport

Once this heat wave lifts, we’re going to have some perfect sunny and 75 days here in Boston. With the phenomenal response that local restaurants and bars have had to ensure the safety of their guests and staff, there is abundant opportunity for mindfully curated summer nights.

Now where shall we go to sip on crisp beverages, talk about how long AND short 2020 has been, and make hopeful plans for 2021? If there’s one Boston neighborhood with the best spots for socially distanced get togethers, it is without a doubt the Seaport. Adjacent to our city’s shore, a walk through the Seaport on a nice summer day is a refreshing tour of modern architecture and 100 year old warehouses alike. Ready for dinner or drinks? Here are our favorite spots to safely enjoy a beautiful evening in Boston’s most blooming neighborhood:

Tuscan Kitchen

Tuscan Kitchen’s pastas and breads are made fresh daily and their chefs prepare everything in house. Conveniently located next to VIA and Watermark, a meal here is truly a taste of authentic cultures from all over Italy. Their outdoor menu’s exquisite offerings include Burrata and Maine Lobster Ravioli. To go with either of these, a glass of the Pinot Nero Rosé will take you straight to the gorgeous region of Umbria. 

Row 34

As luxurious and filling a night out at Tuscan Kitchen is, maybe you’re looking for something a little more light  – We’ve got you there too. Row 34’s raw bar is unmatched and a quick walk from Echelon. From Island Creek oysters from Duxbury to Little Neck clams from Barnstable, Row 34’s seafood is everything fruits of the sea should be: ultra-fresh, complex in taste, and delightfully paired with a dry white wine.

Drink

Going out just for drinks? Just steps away from Seaport in Fort Point, Drink is your best option for the most unique libations. They do not have a beverage menu – yes you heard us right. Instead, their fleet of master bartenders can create any cocktail you have in mind. But if you’re not quite sure what to ask for, just let them know some of your favorite flavors and they’ll craft your own bespoke beverage from scratch. Drink also currently features cocktail kits to go, perfect for Seaport and Fort Point locals.

So there you have it – just a few of the many culinary gems that call the Seaport home and are doing a fabulous job at maintaining safety in these unprecedented times. And for those looking for a new neck of the woods to settle in, we can’t recommend this exciting and eclectic neighborhood enough. If you’re curious about becoming a local to this burgeoning community, please feel free to contact Anna.

Why Boston Seaport?

The Seaport in Boston has been referred in different names, the Innovation District or the South Boston Waterfront. Despite it having different names its neighborhood is the hottest in Boston for the last few years. The Seaport has been known to be amazingly clean, wealthy and futuristic, an area filled with well-dressed people. The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center appears above just like a spaceship. The Seaport is growing fast in the last few years, filled with shops, hotels, restaurants and numerous conventioneers.

It has become a museum point too, the Institute of Contemporary Art holding court on Fan Pier and the Boston Children’s Museum in Fort Point. Developers are trying to promote usual neighborhood activities like outdoor fitness classes, farmer’s market and attractive public art like the Okuda San Miguel’s work. The Seaport maintains normal quietness mostly. When you want to relax outdoor with your family, friends on even alone the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Voyage is the best place. Residents love the new and exciting Seaport and love watching the skyline that changes monthly.

The Seaport is across the Fort Point Channel from the Financial District making it easy for folks working downtown to walk on foot. The proximity of things is highly appreciated by both Seaport and Fort Point residents making it easy to reach important destinations. Drivers are not left behind since it is near to the highway and is dog friendly. The Seaport is full of restaurants especially the iconic eatery for decades was the Anthony’s Pier 4. It was started by Anthony Athanas (an Albanian immigrant). It was a seafood spot that became a Boston institution that was filled by Hollywood stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Judy Garland to politicians who hanged out in the private area upstairs.

Fan Pier Marina is open for business

The new Fan Pier Marina has looked busy the last couple weeks. Boats of all sizes have now taken slips in the Marina. It looks like one of the largest tenants may be Freedom Boat Club which looks to have eight boats ready for action at anytime! According to filed plans there should be expansion of the marina which means more boats slips nearer to ICA and Pier 4 condos. This provides diners at Wood’s Hill with a true marina setting watching the boats come and go.
