Someone may have kavana when starting a seudah to continue it in a different place. However once they get to that second place may they then leave there to another location to continue their seudah. Do they need to have kavana for all the places they might eat by. Is a general kavana to eat in different places enough? What is the re’ah for all this?

Answer:

It is sufficient to have general kavanah for eating in other places.

The idea is that based on the ruling of the Rema, there is no problem bedieved in continuing the meal in a different place, and yet it is not right to do this lechatchilah, for fear that one might forget. However, if one has intention from the beginning, every place one eats is considered the primary place of eating, and there is therefore no concern. See Mishnah Berurah 178:33
