There is nothing like the ambiance of al fresco dining on a warm night. This is markedly true in the pandemic era, when all that’s been available to restaurant patrons for the past few months has been takeout. Fortunately, North End establishments have been able to take advantage of the existing charm of the neighborhoods—and the sidewalk space—to cater to customers in a safe, entertaining way outdoors. Considering the al fresco experience is something that many revel in during the summer under regular circumstances, this solution truly is a win-win. If you’re looking to enjoy a meal and the lively, outside atmosphere of the North End, check out some of these locations.
Mother Anna’s has been serving devoted customers at its Hanover Street location for more than 85 years, and will continue to do so at its new outdoor seating area situated in front of the establishment. You’ll get the same homey, traditional dining experience–only in front of the building rather than in it.
