Rejoice! Boylston Street isn't a crime scene anymore. Which means that now's the time to get back to the neighborhood and support the restaurants and other businesses that suffered. Ahead, where to dine.
Asana: The Mandarin Oriental's restaurant is a soothing (if pricy) lunchtime sanctuary, especially now that chef Rachel Klein is at the helm.
Boloco: Grab a tikka masala burrito and enjoy the sunshine.
Bukowski Tavern: A Pabst Blue Ribbon at Bukowski's is a proven anxiety fighter.
Cafe 939: Live music returns to the Red Room.
City Bar and City Table: These restaurants were most recently in the news for serving hearty portions of bacon and eggs to first responders.
Kings Back Bay: Bowling over coconut shrimp and nachos does signify a certain return to everyday life.
Legal Sea Foods: The iconic seafood emporium is back to doing what it does best: serving chowder.
L'Espalier: The elegant dining room reopens at 5 p.m. tonight, in case you need some extra pampering.
Oak Long Bar + Kitchen: After this week, a stiff martini seems downright necessary.
Parish Cafe: Sandwiches!
Pavement Coffeehouse: Coffee!
Pour House: Beer!
Rattlesnake Bar: Antelope tacos on a rooftop. Just like old times.
Skipjack's: The seafood restaurant writes on Facebook that they feel it's "important to mirror the strength of this city and open our doors."
Solas Irish Pub: More beer!
Tasti D-Lite Boston: Their "secret formula" will put a little pep in your step on a sunny day.
Towne: They reopen at noon, and they're even setting up their patio (pictured).
Hat tip to BRT for faithfully updating their open/closed list!
