Eight Toasty Winterized Patios on Boston’s North Shore
Brave the cold (and Route One) for fish by a fire pit, a heated pasta pavilion, and more destination-worthy dinners.
While you can always hit up Boston’s Buttermilk & Bourbon for Southern-inspired cuisine from chef-restaurateur Jason Santos and chef Jeff DeCandia (including their decadent mac ‘n’ cheese), you’ll find that a field trip to B&B Fish in Marblehead is like hopping in a time machine to the summer—and who doesn’t want that right now? Since opening in early November, the fast-casual spot has been offering beach shack-inspired plates for limited indoor dining, takeout, delivery, and outdoor dining while cozied up by the fire pit. The offerings traipse through New England by way of New Orleans: See the spicy Cajun remoulade for dipping fried whole-belly clams and Louisiana crawfish tails, the battered lobster tail with fries, and beignets with vanilla bean cream and chocolate sauce.
