Bistro du Midi 

Where: Back Bay

Info: This upscale Back Bay restaurant serves authentic French cuisine in a luxurious setting. And your pup can enjoy the finer things in life right alongside you at the restaurant’s outdoor patio. It’s small, so we recommend making reservations.

Short Path Distillery

Where: Everett

Info: Sample craft cocktails made with spirits from the distillery and hang out with your pooch on the dog friendly patio at Short Path in Everett. The patio also boasts music and public artworks.

Atwood’s Tavern 

Where: Cambridge

South End Buttery

Where: South End

Info: This chic South End spot for breakfast and lunch has a small patio to enjoy those bagels on, and Fido can recline there too. It’s a morning ritual built for two.

State Park
