Legal Harborside has won rave reviews from locals and tourists alike. The captivating charm of this Seaport District structure that sits along the edge of Boston Harbor has not lost any luster in its second season, making it a tough reservation to score. Although all three floors offer their own special delights, the third floor is the place to be to sip the night away.
A four season establishment, this third level promenade deck is covered by retractable glass walls and ceiling, allowing guests to still enjoy the panoramic views that you long to see while remaining warm and dry when the weather just is not on your side. When the weather warms, and rain subsides, the roof and walls come down to place you on the most sought after outdoor waterfront patio in Boston.
Although food is served, Floor 3 offers only a small selection of snacks, including sushi and sharable plates, but with long lines to get inside you can easily see why many skip dinner downstairs and simply come here to nosh sporadically throughout the night. Their impressive selection of wines by the glass (twenty seven), specialty cocktails, and pitchers of punches add to the allure. But be sure to get in early, possibly even beating the after work crowd, because as the night wears on the place gets packed and more people get turned away than actually make it up the stairs.
