Downtown Crossing / Financial District / nearby patios for weekday lunch?
With beautiful weather today, I'm thinking about sitting outside for lunch (I did the Clover Food Lab / Boston Common thing a couple of days ago: very nice, but I'm thinking more in terms of table service.) Some restaurants I know (good and not so good) with weekday lunch patios:
Zen Japanese Grill
In / near Faneuil Hall: McCormick & Schmick's, Wagamama, North 26, Joe's American
Rowes Wharf Sea Grill
Legal Sea Foods near Aquarium
Smith & Wollensky (Waterfront)
Cafe Latino and Zo (3 Center Plaza), though they are counter service only.
Any others Hounds shouldn't miss?
Does Pasta Beach have outside seating? Or, you could grab a sandwich (maybe Casa Razdora) & walk thru the arches of The Boston Harbor Hotel & walk toward the Aquarium - there's usually a bench open around there so you can enjoy the sea breeze & the view. Any leftover bread can be used to feed the stripers by the Aquarium too. : )
Had the worst Cuban sandwich I've ever had at Brandy Pete's. Still, it's one of the only Patios in the actual FD and everyone else's food looked OK though Sysco-ey.
There is also a patio at Four Green Fields which never even warranted a second visit. Maybe things have changed.
Also- The Times which I'd assume is foodservice quality but I don't think I've ever actually eaten there.
