If you’re in Boston for a conference, there’s a good chance you’ll end up at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in the Seaport District (415 Summer St.). When the time comes to sneak out for a food break, there are plenty of excellent dining options within walking distance, whether you’re looking for a steak-filled power lunch or a grab-and-go fried chicken sandwich.
In recent years, the neighborhood has gotten filled up with out-of-town chains — a few of the solid ones are included here — but there are some good independent, local picks, too, if you know where to look.
With a focus on convenient lunches but suitable for dinner as well, here are 24 of the best dining options within a 15-minute walk of the convention center, featuring restaurants in Boston’s Seaport District and Fort Point. (Some of these restaurants are full-service, sit-down venues, while others are fast-casual businesses where you order, pay, and pick up food at the counter. See the note at the end of each map point description to see which it is.)
