late lunch after flower show
The flower show this year is at the Seaport. I am pretty unfamiliar with this area. Timing-wise we will probably finish up around 2 so will be looking for a place to grab a bite and a beer nearby if possible, Once we pay for parking wouldn't want to move and pay again. Of course if there's free parking that's ok too.
Good luck with that. There's basically nothing whatsoever of interest nearby, I'm afraid. The only thing I can think of is that little outpost of Flour, but I've found I don't like that one nearly as much as the one in the South End.
We're taking the silver line to the Seaport from South Station, and on our way back, we're walking from SS to Chinatown.
re: Eatin in Woostah
Lucky's Lounge has good food. There is no sign but it's at the corner of Congress and A Street.
LTK is decent. But don't expect the creative cuisine they promise. It is basically a Legals with a bit more of a lounge atmosphere.
The infamous No Name restaurant. I've never been.
There is a Daily Catch in the courthouse building near the Barking Crab. The North End outpost is admittedly better but it's good.
I think Salvatores is open for lunch too. Good pizza and pastas.
Yankee Lobster (just beyond the BOA) for no frills fish market seafood.
Sel de La Terre at Long Wharf walkable.
Disagree about Flour. Good sandwiches and great sweets.
Only places I can think of to really avoid are Whiskey Priest, Barking Crab, Blue Wave and Atlantic Beer Garden.

re: Fort Point
It's a Wolfgang Puck Express Café. Ate there once out of necessity. Not very good. But it is a great building. Great view of the harbor from the second floor exhibition hall.
Have any of the newly promised places in Fan Pier opened?
Missed the beer part. No beer at Flour, not sure about Yankee Lobster.
I second Lucky's- decent pub grub and from what I can recall, they have a decent selection of beers. Also, I'm not sure if it is open on Saturdays but I also like the Fort Point Channel Cafe on Summer Street.
If you are looking for dessert, Flour Bakery is on Farnsworth (right near Lucky's).
