BTW, if memory serves, the staff at Union Oyster House regularly wins regional oyster-shucking competitions. So if the JFK booth is not available, see if you can sit at the main (and original) oyster bar so you can watch the servers shucking fresh oysters to order!

You could walk a couple of blocks down State Street to the waterfront and check out Sel de la Terre or Legal Seafoods at Long Wharf, or walk a few more minutes to the North End for Italian restos galore or Neptune Oyster Bar if you're feeling flush.

Agreed. Just remembered...besides Kingfish Hall, the other place I actually like near Fanueil Hall that is open on Sunday is Hillstone (used to Houston's). It's part of a chain, but the food is good. Small selection of well-made sandwiches, salads, and soups--and always several excellent vegetable side dishes, and they'll let you sub the veg side for the french fries (but the fries are good). http://www.hillstone.com/hillstone/
Thank you to all who wrote...Kingfish Hall's food is so much better than Union Oyster House (despite their history) or Legal Seafood...
Also remembered, Sel de la Terre has an adjacent boulangerie where they sell their breads but also sandwiches, etc. Not sure if there is seating, it might just be take-out. In the summer you can sit outside but not in February.
