Woods Hill is a relative rarity in the Seaport. It’s not a chain, a restaurant with multiple neon signs, or a fast-casual place filled with every single lawyer in the city from 11-1 and absolutely no one else at any other time. What it is, is a farm-to-table restaurant that really deserves that title, since it’s named after the New Hampshire farm where the owners source a lot of the food. Not everything on the menu is a hit (the peppercorn crusted swordfish is seemingly made with an entire mill’s worth of pepper) but other dishes, like the whelk with coconut lobster broth, make Woods Hill more than just a place with a great view. (Though being located directly on the harbor in one of the countless brand new Seaport condo buildings, it’s definitely got a great view).
