The Lawn on D has transformed into a giant outdoor restaurant

What does it mean to go out to eat now? With Phase 2’s launch on Monday, it means eating outside on patios, sidewalks, parking lots — and now, on sprawling lawns.

 

The Lawn on D, the expansive green space next to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, will reopen Friday at noon as a massive outdoor restaurant. While the space has previously served as a hangout where people could gather for live music, lawn games, and special events, the lawn is now filled with 180 tables that can seat 700 guests for table-side service.

"The champion of this department was Levy Restaurants, an event and catering company associated with Hynes Convention Center. Levy’s cupcakes were basically beyond words. I’ve never tasted a better crafted cupcake in my entire 26 year-cupcake-eating-life."

“There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing a city-kid on a boat for the first time — smiling, confident, and amazed after catching their first fish. To keep our program running, we rely on the generosity and support of programs like the MCCA’s Community Partnership Grants. Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”
