All those beautiful spots near the water, once waiting for commercial tenants, are filling up fast with eateries, lounges, bars, and shops. Fort Point Channel, the Seaport, and South Boston neighborhoods are flush with upcoming restaurants. Boldface openings slated for the coming months include Babbo Pizzeria e Enoteca from culinary superstar Mario Batali on Summer Street; Pastoral, which promises artisan pizza from chef Todd Winer, formerly of the MET Restaurant Group, on Congress Street; and Row 34, a seafood-centric endeavor from the team behind Kenmore Square’s successful Island Creek Oyster Bar, also slated for Congress Street. No need to wait, though. There are already plenty of new spots to visit. These establishments, mostly open within the last year, offer something tasty for office workers, visitors, and a growing crowd who call the neighborhoods around the water home.
