Right off the Metropolitan G/L stop, Zona Rosa is a great place to meet up with a few friends over tacos, margaritas, and guacamole on its awesome roof. You might encounter a bit of a wait on nice nights (when they open the windows and it becomes an indoor/outdoor situation), but it’s never too hard to get a seat.

For a relatively cheap place with ample space and good drinks, I’m not complaining. For the Seaport, it’s definitely a good option. Put this restaurant anywhere else though, and we’d keep on walking.
