Hmm.  BOS I've travelled in and out of regularly the last year or so.
In Terminal E, out Terminal B. 

Terminal E (International) has places for people to eat/drink and sit
outside the security checkpoints on the departure level (there are more
options inside the checkpoints, granted).  Waiting for arrivals could
do with some more space, but its only a short escalator ride from the
departure level, and the baggage claim area is sealed off from the public
(as it should be IMHO).  People seem to cope ok.

Terminal B also has food and drink concessions outside the checkpoint, 
again... not so many choices as behind the checkpoints, and the Admiral's
Club is on the secure side.
