Another Content Marketing Conference is upon us, and we’re hosting the event at The Westin Boston Waterfront which is close to, but a little ways off from, South Station and the central hub of the city. Boston is home to a host of foodie destinations and the Seaport District is no exception. We had you covered with a dinner reception and refreshments throughout the day, but there’s so much more to be seen in this historic town. If you need a break from conference craziness or want to talk shop with your new colleagues over a latte or a fine meal, you’ll want to check out these local eateries within walking distance of the Westin and convention area.

No Name Restaurant

A Fish Pier landmark for over a century, No Name Restaurant is world-famous for its seafood and no-frills style with a home-like atmosphere. It’s meant to feel like an old sailors’ tavern rather than an upscale and ultra-modern dining experience and that charm is just part of why a place with no name has had such a loyal customer base since World War I.

Pete’s Dockside

If you want to get a cup of coffee or quick bite, Pete’s has been serving up breakfast classics, sandwiches, and seafood in a casual diner-like atmosphere contrary to its destination restaurant counterparts along the pier. A lovely hidden gem to have a quiet chat over coffee or home style seafood with a colleague.

Trio Cafe

If it’s light fare for breakfast or lunch, or just a cup of coffee, that you’re looking for, Trio Cafe along the pier is your top choice. If you’re vegan and/or in need of gluten-free options, Trio also has a large selection of these items if the other restaurants in the area don’t have anything suiting your dietary needs.

Flour Bakery

If you don’t want a whole meal but just want to get a cup of coffee and a pastry, Flour Bakery on Farnsworth is the place to go. You can get anything from classic croissants and sticky buns to decadent cream cakes and other delights, and there are also healthy options on the menu.

Cafe on D by Deli of Course

Right across from The Westin on D Street, this cozy breakfast and lunch spot serves up all manner of classics until 11 then you can get a variety of pasta dishes, sandwiches, salads, and Mediterranean nibbles like kebabs and mezze plates.

Bastille Kitchen

With a large selection of French classics, seafood, and flatbreads, Bastille Kitchen brings the ultimate French bistro vibe to the Seaport. Since the restaurant is only open for dinner and drinks, it’s the perfect place to meet like-minded marketers, writers, and business leaders after today’s sessions end.

Pastoral ARTisan Pizza + Kitchen + Bar

The Seaport maybe a seafood destination but it’s not the only option: there are also plenty of fantastic restaurants to get classic Italian fare. With lunch and dinner menus available, Pastoral Pizza and Kitchen offers a variety of wood-fired pizzas as well as sandwiches and pasta plus a sizable beer selection.

Oak + Rowan

If you’re looking for a more upscale establishment to get a cheese board, mushroom tartine, or gourmet twists on Boston classics like clam chowder and fish and chips, Oak + Rowan has lunch and dinner menus plus an extensive bar, which makes it the perfect place to entertain a potential new client.

We hope that you get a great deal out of CMC 2019 and enjoy the WriterAccess team’s hospitality. We look forward to hearing about your experience!
