Boston's Outdoor Patios to Enjoy this Summer

We’ve all worked so hard over the past few months to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and it is such a joy to see things opening up in our city. Boston is now home to lots of new outdoor patios, where people can dine and enjoy each other’s company once again, in a safe, mindful way. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite patios that we will be visiting again and again this summer!

North End - Bricco

First on our list is Bricco in the North End. The North End is one of our most historic neighborhoods and the streets have even more European flair these days thanks to the patios lining each side. Located just a short walk from The Langham, Boston, Bricco is a staple in the North End. Its prominent location on Hanover Street makes this Italian classic an accessible spot for the whole family. Must trys include: the Lobster Fra Diavolo and Burrata Salad. Their classic dishes paired with their signature espresso martinis make for a fun evening out. Be sure to call ahead for a reservation as they are packed every night with Bostonians celebrating summer.

Seaport - Paris Creperie

For Bostonians who are missing France, head to Paris Creperie for a classic Parisian experience. Everything from the tables to the décor to the menu has been executed to perfection. Their straightforward menu of crepes and canapés are just what we all need on a summer’s day—sometimes the best things in life are simple. Sit back, relax and you’ll feel as if you’ve taken a trip to Paris without a plane ticket!

South End - Beehive

Head to the South End for a glamourous bistro experience. One of our favorites is the Beehive. Known for their live music and fun atmosphere, the Beehive has expanded its already famous patio menu for even more tasty dishes to enjoy this summer. Their brand-new menu features farm-fresh favorites like Heirloom Tomato & Watermelon Salad and Spring Pea Fusilli. Be sure to also order one of their signature craft cocktails for an evening under their twinkling lights. The energy in the South End is so welcoming and cheerful, a night out at Beehive is always a treat.

Financial District – Union Oyster House

Last but not least, we are so lucky to have America’s oldest restaurant, Union Oyster House, located just steps from the hotel. For the first time in their nearly 200-year history, they have an outdoor patio. Guests can now enjoy New England classics like Lobster Rolls and Clam Chowder outside, while admiring the Union Oyster House’s colonial architecture and the buzzing ambiance of Union Street. Grab your friends and head over for a meal at this Freedom Trail watering hole—now serving alfresco.
