Seaport District Restaurants That Will Knock Your Socks Off

Boston is booming, and no section is growing quite as quickly as the Seaport District. Technically, South Boston the Seaport District connects the waterfront to the rest of the city and has made this section of South Boston quite a posh place to be. Within the Seaport District you will find restaurants galore with new spots opening all the time by big name chefs as well as newcomers and chain owners. Waterfront dining has come to life in Boston due to this area's transformation from a commercial fishing mecca to a high end dining destination.

As part of the Seaport District, you'll find an area labeled Fort Point Channel, where the more industrial feel of the streets is mirrored in the decor of the restaurants that exchange waterfront views for a sense of cool. Here the hip crowd gathers to dine at hot spots like Tavern Road and Sportello where you'll find not only some of the best food in the Seaport District, but also in the city. The melding of the diverse landscapes attracts a variety of diners and gives the Seaport character that can't be found elsewhere in Boston. 

Enjoy the waterfront by reserving yourself a seat on the patios and decks that make these spots popular. From seafood at Legal's to a steak at Del Frisco's you'll be happy with more than your meal.
