Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or a random Wednesday night in October or anything in between, sometimes the most important question in figuring out where to make a dinner reservation is whether the restaurant is romantic.
Some picture a classic white-tablecloth restaurant for the ultimate romantic dining destination; others prefer a funky little hideaway with eclectic decor. Highlighting 18 restaurants and bars in and around Boston, this map aims to cover a variety of vibes, neighborhoods, and price points for the most romantic night out.
Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. Note that as of January 15, 2022, restaurants in the city of Boston are required to check for proof of vaccination for customers dining indoors. (Brookline and Salem have similar policies, with Brookline’s also covering outdoor seating areas.)
