You know that fun back patio you don’t have? It’s here at B&G Oysters, an upscale seafood restaurant in South End. Get a glass of wine, a lobster roll, and some oysters, and pretend you’re at a fancy cocktail party for the evening. If it’s cold out, the small, underground dining room is still a good time, especially if you sit at the counter in front of the open kitchen.
