Restaurants in Fenway / Kenmore Overview

The Hawthorne - Cocktail Bar | Hotel Bar | Lounge in Fenway / Kenmore, Boston

No longer the stagnant, fast-food and questionable hot dog vendor driven food scene it used to be, the Fenway and Kenmore restaurant scene has blossomed in recent years, with the razing of older buildings and the new development of formerly vacant lots.

Celebrity chef Tiffany Faison, of “Top Chef Masters” fame, chose this neighborhood to be the location of her very first restaurant. The BBQ spot, called Sweet Cheeks, features tables fashioned from old church doors and bowling alley lanes, sweet tea served in recycled Mason jars, and of course, every kind of tender-roasted hunk of meat, alongside a generous selection of brewery libations.

Church, which is part restaurant, part music venue, also relies on a well-thought-out list of libations, serving up a now-legendary “Seven Deadly Sins” cocktail menu that would have even the most devout on their knees begging forgiveness.

Many of the older spots in this neighborhood are bars and clubs that also serve food to satisfy the Red Sox crowd that often pervades the area. Places like Boston Beer Works, Game On!, and the Cask 'n Flagon bank heavily on their proximity to Fenway Park, making them a convenient place to grab a bite before or after the game, but not necessarily being on the forefront of culinary innovations.

In Kenmore Square, Eastern Standard, The Hawthorne, and Island Creek Oyster Bar are the most significant of the higher-end fare, as the area does have a good smattering of fast-food establishments in the area as well.
