What's better than a star-rated meal with a fabulous view? Only the best seat in the house. While I can't guarantee you'll get the see-and-be-seen table, I can guarantee you'll have a great view at any of these Boston restaurants:
No 9 Park: Barbara Lynch's trendy bistro on Beacon Hill is not only one of the most expensive in the city, it's also get one of the best views: Boston Common. If you're lucky enough to score a table along the Park Street windows, you'll have premium seats to all the action happening on the park and at the State House.
Top of the Hub: Located on the 52nd floor of the Prudential Center, the Top of the Hub restaurant offers sweeping views of the city. Stop in here for a cocktail before dinner around town or, if you decide to dine here, make sure you grab a table at the window. Our favorite views are those of the city, but you can also get water views from this high.
Rialto: Over in Cambridge, Rialto at the Charles Hotel has prime real estate for viewing the happenings in Harvard Square. There are only a few tables at the window, though, so request one ahead of time when you make a reservation. During the warmer months, Rialto's bar offers outdoor seating, which extends into the courtyard just off the hotel. It's a great spot for people watching!
