Not in Boston’s future: the Olympics.

In Boston’s future: prosecco Negronis, seafood meatballs and one hell of a patio.

Such is the scene at Mare Oyster Crudo and Seafood Bar, the second coming of an Italian seafood bastion, only now with 294% more patio, opening tomorrow in the North End.

Here’s what’s going on:

Then: White tablecloths and floor-to-ceiling windows. Just the place you’d bring a third date for Alaskan king crab legs and truffle-crusted tuna.
Now: White tablecloths and marble walls. The Alaskan king crab legs and truffle-crusted tuna haven’t gone anywhere. And that third date now includes gnocchi with frutti di mare.

Then: A rather conspicuous lack of patio.
Now: An outdoor sprawl pulled from somewhere between the Amalfi Coast and Miami Beach. You’ve got white umbrellas, fire-pit-adjacent sofas and a retractable glass roof from Florence. The Italian one. Not the Alabama one. (Slideshow reporting for duty.)

Then: Broken Negronis (Campari, vermouth, prosecco) and 18 types of oysters at a crudo bar with spectacular views of the walls.
Now: Broken Negronis and 18 types of oysters at a slightly larger crudo bar with spectacular views of the skyline.

Your reign of terror is over, walls.
