Ten Outdoor Dining Areas In or Near the Boston Area

photo of the Harborside Grill in East Boston, MASo it's sunny and in the 80s today, which wouldn't be all that noteworthy if it were July, but today is March 22(!), making this one of the warmest days ever in the month of March. This time of year, very few restaurants in the Boston area have their outdoor dining areas set up, as few people would want to dine al fresco in 45-degree weather, but because of the abnormally warm temperatures right now, many if not most eateries with outdoor patios and decks are indeed ready for folks who wish to dine outside.

Since so many people seem to be interested in dining under the stars (or the sun) right now, we have put together a little slideshow sampling of the kinds of places in or near the Boston area that have outdoor dining. Included here you will find photos of completely under-the-radar spots (like Leggos in Holbrook), upscale eateries (Allora Ristorante in Marlborough), places with good people-watching (Picco in the South End), restaurants with jaw-dropping scenery (Harborside Grill in East Boston), and more. The link to the slideshow is below; enjoy, and have fun if you dine in the great outdoors over the next day or two!
