Sullivan’s Is Open, and It’s Patio Season Today at These Boston Restaurants

With a 60-degree forecast in February, it's time to dine and drink al fresco.

We’re not getting ahead of ourselves here—it’s still February, after all—but we’re definitely having a couple drinks outside today. It’s not quite patio season, when Boston transforms into a beautiful landscape of al fresco dining options, but the following restaurants and bars will dust off the patio furniture (…in some cases) for snacks and drinks on their decks in celebration of the 64-degree high predicted for Thursday, February 23.

UPDATE, Friday, February 24: With another beautiful day on the horizon, we’ve updated this list with more open patios. There is a slight chance of rain in the forecast tonight, so make sure to call ahead just to make sure if your heart is set on a seat outside.
