Sam's at Louis, Fan Pier, Boston

After some questionable weather patterns the past few weeks, we have had some gorgeous days recently.  One one such day Sam's At Louis, located on the Fan Pier in Fort Point Channel area, invited in a group of area bloggers and writers to enjoy their beautiful patio, and sample some of their delicious dishes.

Sam's at Louis opened last year, and I have to say- it has one of my favorite views in the city.  Located right on the water, their patio is elevated and looks at the Rowes Wharf and beyond to the financial district.  There is just no better spot to enjoy the beauty of Boston, short of being on a boat :-)

We were served light bites that evening, ranging from jalapeno crab Rangoon, to pistachio crusted lamb.  Favorite amount what a I tasted the evening was a ceviche halibut, topped with potato sticks and served in a lettuce leaf.  It was bright and refreshing, and had wonderful attention to detail with the texture of the potato. 

The staff at Sam's were wonderfully friendly and helpful, kindly putting up with round upon round of photos as they attempted to angle the plates in the bright rays of sunshine.  After enjoying my evening on their patio, I am certain I'll return for more summer enjoyment.
