I am flying MSP-BOS-AMS this afternoon. I will be arriving in BOS at 7:07pm, with my connection leaving at 9:40pm to AMS. My brother lives about an hour from the airport. Do I have enough time to meet with him, and still get back through security and catch my flight? I will have a business class boarding pass (and airline ID) if that matters. Are there any restaurants outside of security at BOS, or one closeby?

Yes, plenty of time. At that time of the night the terminal is dead. There is 1 restaurant upstairs before security and it actually happens to be right next to the security checkpoint so you can gauge the lines while you eat  Smile But if you have a business class boarding pass that shouldn't be a problem for you because there are seperate security lines.

Thank you. Exactly what I was looking for  Smile

I've had a snack there once; the service was poor (we had a very moody waitress) and they didn't have half the things we ordered. I'm not going back...

If you're willing to walk 10-15 mins to terminal C, there's a Legal Seafoods there (outside security), which has better and more consistent food and service than any other place at BOS (IMHO of course).

Yeah. I've flown out of Terminal E that time of the night several times. Security lines are really not an issue; especially if you can get on the business / first line...

Personally I've never had a bad experience there but it is an airport restaurant so don't expect much. The pizza was good though. And yes, terminal C has better options but not as convenient.

You arrive at 7 and leave at 9:40? Assuming your brother is coming to meet you, that's not a problem. You could probably even duck into Boston on the T and come back, if you don't find anything you want in the terminal. I hope you're not planning on driving the hour to meet him, though, otherwise you'll have, what, 36 seconds to visit?  silly

If you can squeeze it in, there's a place called Santarpios in East Boston either before the entrance to the Callahan and Sumner tunnels. It's got great food and would be a 5 min cab ride from Logan.

Hear hear! You could even take the free airport shuttle bus to the Airport T station then walk to Santarpio's from there. I never miss stopping at 'Tahp's when I go to BOS. Some of the best pizza in the world, and certainly in Boston.
