26 Boston Restaurants Now Welcome Dogs on Patios for Unfurgettable Dining

Hold onto your leashes, Bostonians, because the city has unleashed a howling good policy!

Restaurant patios are now open to our furry friends for the summer, and it’s creating a canine revolution of gastronomic proportions!

Thanks Mayor Wu! Now we have 26 Boston Restaurants Welcome Dogs on Patios

Picture this: you’re sipping a refreshing cocktail, basking in the warm sunshine, when suddenly, a pack of Pomeranians struts in wearing sunglasses and tiny Hawaiian shirts. It’s like a doggy fashion show, and every tail is wagging in approval. Who needs a catwalk when you have a dogwalk?

But it’s not just about the fashion, folks. These doggy diners are bringing a whole new level of entertainment to our meals. From Bulldogs trying to snag a slice of pizza to Poodles practicing their table manners, it’s a sidesplitting spectacle that will have you laughing so hard your dessert might just fly out of your mouth.

Not only that, but the dog-friendly patios are a catalyst for new friendships. The pooch-loving community comes together, swapping treat recipes and exchanging tips on the best doggie spas in town. It’s like a secret society, where the only password is a wag and a lick.

And let’s not forget the economic bone-us! More dog-loving customers mean more revenue for these restaurants. People are lining up just to be surrounded by fluffy tails and wet noses. Who needs a celebrity chef when you can have a celebrity dog at the next table?

So grab your furry best friends, Boston, and head to the nearest dog-friendly patio. It’s a summer sensation that will make your taste buds and your tail wag with delight!

Just remember:

The program depends on individual restaurants applying, so it’s a good idea to check before you show up with Fido.

Wu’s office shared a list of guidelines for dog owners at any of the new pet-friendly spaces:

All dogs must always be leashed or in a pet carrier.
You’re not allowed to let dogs eat off plates.
Dogs also aren’t allowed to sit on the table or in chairs.
Consider bringing your dog a disposable water bowl.
