The Celtics, the Bruins—maybe a comedy show? Whether you’re a culture maven or a sports fan, you can eat well at TD Garden regardless. Here are our picks for dining in and around the venue.
This sandwich spot has plenty of burgers and wings, but it also serves salads and hummus, at Loge 16 and Balcony 309.

Visit Loge 20 and Balcony 313 for veggie bowls and tacos plus vegan chorizo tacos.
This wildly popular Greek fast-casual chain is from the team behind the South End’s much-loved Krasi.

Many options are nut- and dairy-free.

This is the Boston flagship for “Iron Chef” Masaharu Morimoto. Here, you’ll find an assortment of sushi rolls and ramen, including a spicy vegan version made with miso, tomato, kale, corn and tofu. Bonus: They take reservations, so you won’t be late to your seats.
This friendly Central Square taqueria (now with a location in Charlestown) also has a window at Hub Hall, where you’ll find veggie-forward dishes like tofu tacos, green chile tortas, kale-cauliflower salad with a zippy lime-thyme dressing and veggie taco bowls.
In the neighborhood
This is the closest fine-dining restaurant in the area, and one of Boston’s best (with a soothing waterfront view). Restaurateur Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli (Craigie on Main, Eastern Standard) is in charge here, serving a farm-fresh dinner menu: parsnip soup, mushroom and squash radiatori and a kid’s menu. (Yes, this is a very family-friendly spot, despite the pedigree.) There’s also a fun lunch menu, with smoked salmon and everything bagels, a cheese plate from Formaggio Kitchen and quinoa succotash.
The Financial District branch of Clover is a pleasant 20-minute stroll from TD Garden, home to spicy lentil soup, Impossible plant-based meatballs, chickpea fritters on warm pita and lots more. It’s certified by Lighthouse Kosher.
J.P. Licks is a kosher ice cream favorite, and happily, there’s a KVH-certified location on Beacon Hill, about a 15-minute walk away. It’s open until 11 p.m.
