Important notes:

  • Information may have changed after it was added to this list, although we are updating as frequently as possible, so please confirm with restaurants directly before heading out.
  • A statewide travel ban is currently in effect, and there is no MBTA service today, so it's your feet or nothing. You should probably stay at home or at least close by.
