Outdoor dining is not usually synonymous with winter in Boston, however, for intrepid diners, Fairmont Battery Wharf has opened its outdoor terrace to create a cozy winter escape along the waterfront. The terrace features lounging couches and Adirondack chairs, cozy blankets, fire pits, and heat lamps to ensure a comfortable experience.
Perfect for beginning or ending a night out, the Winter Terrace menu features light fare cooked over open flame at the Aragosta fire pits. The menu features gourmet campfire S'Mores featuring marshmallows, graham crackers, and the choice of chocolate, peanut butter cups or sliced banana. For a more savory option, Gruyere fondue is accompanied by a platter of air dried salumi, cherry peppers, and crusty ciabatta bread.
The comfortable atmosphere of the Winter Terrace provides the ideal environment to sip on a warming cocktail. The menu contains a variety of featured fire pit cocktails, including the rum cobbler, a combination of Pyrat Rum, apple and honey puree, and black walnut bitters; the whiskey warmer, comprised of Rye 1 Whiskey steeped hot with apple spiced tea; or spiked hot chocolate, a blend of Bellagio chocolate with the option of Godiva, Bailey's or Kahlua, and topped with Grand Marnier Whipped Cream.
The Winter Terrace is open every night from 5:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and reservations are required. For more information about the Winter Terrace, please call (617) 994-9000 or visit fairmont.com/batterywharf-boston.
