Whether you don’t want to miss the coming attractions before your movie at iPic, or you need a quick bite before sightseeing on the Circle Line, Luchadores is the best counter-service option in the Seaport. This Mexican spot serves five meat options for your burritos and tacos, like carne asada that we prefer in burrito form, or panko-crusted fish that makes for the best taco, as well as chips with some very good, chunky guacamole. There are a few picnic tables in the courtyard out front, but the best thing to do here is get your food to go, and eat it on Pier 17 across the street.
