Oak & Rowan

“Hunt. Fish. Farm. Gather.” Exactly the motto you’re looking for if you’re into surf & turf. Oak & Rowan is located just off of Summer Street at 321 A street right across from Blue Dragon. O & R has a trendy, upscale feel, and the service is wonderful. There is no doubt you will pay for this fancy feel and sophisticated menu. Most of the poor reviews of this place center around small portions and price, so keep that in mind if you’ve got a huge appetite.

That being said, Oak & Rowan’s menu has something for everyone. They have burgers and steak tacos for the land lovers, and fish n’ chips and Maine lobster rolls for seafaring folk. This is a solid spot to go have some smaller plates and cocktails with colleagues or clients.

Outlook Kitchen & Bar

Outlook Kitchen & Bar is the often less talked about restaurant at Envoy Hotel in Seaport, and it is a great spot for a sit down breakfast if you’re in the area. The view from Outlook may not be quite as impressive as the view from their rooftop bar, Lookout, but you still get to overlook the Barking Crab and many of Boston’s Financial District buildings. Outlook is also located just over the bridge into Seaport, so it’s about as easy to get to as something can be in the Seaport.

Outlook’s lunch menu isn’t huge and centers around flatbreads and sandwiches, with the highlights being the Chicken Sandwich and Lobster PLT (P = Pancetta). The pricing here bumps  bit from their surprisingly affordable breakfast, but when the weather allows it, their outdoor space is wonderful and makes for a great spot for a sit down lunch. Clients from out of town will love the “Boston” feel, as they’ll be looking down at the Barking Crab, Boston Harbor, and the Financial District. Oh, and if you’re just looking to take a load off, the bar is wonderful and a great place to just hang out and reflect if that’s what you need.

Gather

Gather, a seafood driven restaurant, is a solid sit down option for anyone in the Seaport area. Located in District Hall, Gather shares it’s space with the Innovation Community, so don’t be surprised to see entrepreneurs walking around or business events taking place. Gather is certainly another Seaport spot that benefits from great weather, as their outdoor seating has a wonderful view of a park and the water, but even if you’re stuck inside, the entire front wall is windowed, and almost everyone in the restaurant has a great view of the water due to the variation in the height of tables.

As for the food, it’s pretty much all good. The clam chowder and French onion soup are great, and all of their salads can have Salmon, Lobster, Shrimp, Chicken, or Steak added to them. Who knows, maybe even more than one of those? I’ve never asked. If you’re drinking, try the Nantucket Mule (think regular Moscow Mule but with Cranberry Juice added). This is a great place to bring a client or a few friends, and there are plenty of bars and other restaurants to continue onto in the area if you’re looking to have yourself a bit of a night.

Legal Harborside

Legal Harborside, located right on the water on Northern Ave, is a staple of Boston’s Seaport Neighborhood. The restaurant has three separate floors, and they all have great views of Boston Harbor. The first is a standard dining floor with a ton of tables (including picnic tables that are great for larger groups), the second floor is finer dining area great for private dining events, and the third floor is a roof deck that serves a smaller, sushi-driven menu.

While Legal Harborside can turn into a bit of a circus in the summer and after work (particularly the roof deck), the first floor it is a great sit down lunch option for any seafood fan. There are a few land-lover options on the menu (burger, pizza), but this is very much a spot for team or client lunches with seafood lovers.

City Tap

Perhap the most versatile restaurant and bar in Seaport, there are almost no occasions for which City Tap can’t provide a successful experience. This place works for big groups, quick lunches, quick drinks, has an awesome outdoor area, and a well-rounded menu. Everything is reasonably priced, and while we’ve put this under the “American” category, vegetarian, seafood, and pizza lovers have great options on this menu as well. And, as the name is City *Tap*, one would not be surprised to hear that there is a huge selection of craft and local beers on tap at all times, but don’t sleep on their cocktail menu either, it’s got a lot to offer.

The restaurant itself is split into 3 sections: the bar and hightable area, the dining area, and the outdoor space. The bar is long with a number of high tables around it, the dining area, and the outdoor patio. That patio is great in the summer and has fire pits during the colder seasons, and there are TVs just about everywhere in the restaurant, so if you’re looking to catch any sort of sporting event on TV, this place is perfect.

Committee

This Mediterranean/Greek tapas spot is great for a medium sized group of friends, coworkers, and colleagues. Located right in the middle of Seaport, next to the courthouse, Committee is constantly filled with professionals from the Seaport District. This “high energy” eatery features a large horseshoe bar at the center of the restaurant, where there serve some of the best drinks in the Seaport (try the spicy Moscow Mule).

Committee has a modern feel, and right when you walk in, you may notice that this place feels almost more like a longue than a restaurant, as the front doubles as a great function/after work gathering place for many of the surrounding companies. As you walk to the back, you find a beautiful bar and long tables great for large group meals, and all the way in the back, you’ll find regular seating for smaller groups. Simply put, this place is beautifully decorated and executes well on both food and drink - just make sure you like Greek food!

Babbo Pizzeria

If you are a pizza lover, Babbo is a great place for lunch in the area. It is located on Fan Pier Boulevard right by the water, but you likely won’t have much of a view of it no matter where you sit in the restaurant. That being said, the interior of Babbo is simple but elegant, and if you sit right next to the pizza oven at the bar, you can watch your pizza be made right in front of you.

The menu at Babbo is, unsurprisingly, pizza-driven, and it boasts 17 different house pizza options on top of a build-your-own option. I suggest trying the meatball. They supplement the pizza options with a number of delicious looking pasta dishes, a terrific wine list, and great cocktails.

LoLa 42

Lola 42, located on Liberty Drive in the Seaport District, is a Japanese izakaya-style restaurant (think Japanese gastropub) that is a sibling to Nantucket’s Lola 41. Lola 42 has a very cozy and casual feel with many of the seats being elevated seats overlooking the Sushi bar.

If you look at the menu, you may realize that calling this place Japanese is a bit of an under sell (and mostly because of all the Sushi). You’ll find that there are Italian Gnocchi Bolognese) and American (Wagyu Hot Dog!) options on this menu. This place is great for hanging out with your team or a client, but it is pretty pricey. Most rolls and entrees are going to be around $20.

Pastoral

Located in Fort Point, Pastoral is a pizza spot great for getting bigger groups together and sharing some phenomenal pizza. Pastoral prides itself on its relationships with local hunters, farmers, and other artisans from around the area, and has put together a diverse pizza menu as a result. The restaurant has a casual feel; mixed drinks come in simple glasses and the table settings are kept to a minimum. The ascetic focus here is clearly on taste and flavors, and that is more than enough reward for any patron.

Pastoral is reasonably priced for a spot in the Seaport, with pizzas running between $11-20 (with a gluten free crust option), and there really is something for everyone. Meat eaters will love the “Fennel Sausage” pizza, and vegetarians may want to check out the “Lemon” pizza. In addition to the everyday menu, Pastoral offers special pizzas that are actually special and almost always find their way into a group order.

Row 34

You’ve all heard of it and you probably know what it is, but here goes anyway: Row 34 is considered one of the nicest seafood restaurants in Boston. Sporting a 4.5 star rating on Yelp with over 1K reviews supports this claim. As you walk into Row 34, you’ll find high ceilings, minimalistic table set ups, and an eye-catching raw bar.  

The owners of Row 34 have said “if we could eat oysters and drink beer for every meal period, we probably would”, so their passion is real. Accordingly, their raw bar menu is phenomenal as it contains all the best oyster farms in the New England area, smoked and cured fish, and a number of crudo/ceviche options. The lunch menu has everything a seafood fan would look for, including both warm and chilled lobster rolls, and the Old Bay onion rings are an incredible addition to any meal.

This place can be hard to get a reservation at, so if you’re going to come here, I suggest you plan it in advance!
