Rental Buildings of Note

AROUND THE BLOCK
The Seaport has been impressive in its ability to draw such a wide variety of restaurants, bars, hotels, museums, shopping and activities to the area in a relatively short period of time. You’ll find some Boston establishments as well as some new comers making a name for themselves. Below are a few highlights of what the neighborhood has to offer.
Envoy Hotel: The Envoy Hotel has quickly become a hot spot for travelers and Bostonians alike. Part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, Envoy features a collection of contemporary art and virtual pool table in the lobby, Outlook, the ground floor restaurant, and Lookout, the spacious rooftop bar. In the winter, Lookout features igloos so even in the snow you can still enjoy a cocktail looking out at the Boston skyline.
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse: If you are looking for dinner with a view, one of the Seaport’s most popular restaurants is Del Frisco’s. The steak house features floor to ceiling window to capture the stunning view of the Boston Harbor and offers up an extensive menu with some of the more popular dishes being the dry-aged steaks, broiled lobster tail, charred octopus, lamb and lobster macaroni and cheese.
Row 34: Developed from the team that made the Island Creek Oyster Bar which is one of my local favorites, Row 34 brings in a crowd of its own in the Seaport. Popular with the after-work crowd and another one of my favorite spots, Row 34 emphasizes on expensive raw bar (oysters of course!), lobster rolls, and extensive curated beers menu.
