Boston’s Seaport neighborhood, once a thriving shipping area in the Boston Harbor, has grown from its previously industrial hub into a chic neighborhood over the last few decades. The area distinguishes itself from downtown Boston with a combination of new architecture and reworked warehouse facades resting along the waterfront, which is lined with walkways perfect for a cooling stroll in the summer heat. Nestled in the heart of this miniature metropolis are the Seaport apartments at NEMA Boston, where residents live in nautically inspired luxury, complete with sweeping city views and a suite of amenities never imagined by last century’s dockworkers. So, keep reading to learn about some great spots that help make Seaport Boston’s hottest neighborhood!

Let’s start with an incredible eatery that has made a name for itself in this crowded foodie destination. Committee is a Greek restaurant that combines a love for the classic spirit ouzo with a menu of Mediterranean dishes that are sure to get your mouth watering. Try the calamari with saffron aioli or savor a delectable lamb souvlaki, both of which are available for takeout or dining in, while following social distancing guidelines.

Nearby destination Mastro’s has also made the necessary arrangements to reopen their dining room, making it one of the best places in the neighborhood to sit for a nice meal this summer. Check out iconic steakhouse offerings like oysters on the half shell, the tart Caesar salad, and one of the chef’s choice cuts of Wagyu beef before finishing it all off with a decadent Chocolate Sin Cake for dessert. The full menu is available for takeout if you’d prefer to enjoy your meal in the comfort of your own NEMA Boston home.

As the summer days go by, more restaurants are finding ways to reopen their dining rooms. Neighborhood favorite Lolita is still serving up some of the best Mexican cuisine east of the Mississippi, including their signature jalapeño chicken flautas, in their hip dining room. And YOTEL is featuring a full takeout menu as well as working to open their much-loved rooftop lounge, an outdoor space with a 270 degree view of the city and harbor.

Whether you’re dining in or taking out, there’s no better place to start and end your Seaport adventure than NEMA Boston. These spacious luxury apartments feature NEMA’s unique collection of high-end amenities, including a rooftop deck, a Creators Suite complete with a dedicated 3D printer, and a host of wellness spaces — including a private yoga studio with Seaport views.
