The Baseball Tavern: The Next Best Place to Watch a Sox Game

Here in Red Sox Nation, one of the most coveted spots (if you can make your way in) during a home game is The Baseball Tavern. The four-story bar/restaurant offers a variety of large screen high def TVs so you can get a great view of the game from any seat in the house. Those in the know sneak up to the roof deck for some al fresco dining or a nice cold beer in the sun while listening to the roar of Fenway Park just steps away. Order up some Fenway franks or a sausage smothered in onions and peppers and you’ll feel right at home. Visit thebaseballtavern.com for more information.

Jerry Remy’s Hits a Homerun in Red Sox Nation

Jerry Remy is one of the biggest names in baseball here in Red Sox nation so we knew it would be just a matter of time before he opened his own restaurant just steps from Fenway Park. Located on Boylston Street, the casual restaurant serves up burgers, wings, nachos, salads, pulled pork, barbecue and of course, Jerry’s famous RemDawg hot dog covered in chili, cheddar cheese and onions. Be sure to ask about the “season pass” that allows guaranteed seating, front of the line privileges and exclusive entry. Visit jerryremys.com for more information.

Dine in the City’s First Japanese Brasserie at Basho

Picture 8The city has finally introduced its first modern Japanese brasserie known as Basho. Located near Fenway Park, Basho is the latest from Jack Huang, owner of the popular Douzo in the Back Bay. The restaurant offers an innovative interpretation of modern Japanese cuisine using Western styles, methods and ingredients with signature dishes, like flavored Sushi and Sashimi (traditional Japanese flavors added directly to the seafood), lobster miso bouillabaisse and foie gras teriyaki.

Basho (Japanese for “a place where things happen”) also offers a variety of cocktails – think house infusions and homemade simple syrups using fresh, local herbs- along with traditional Japanese sake, wine and beer. The interior boasts soaring ceilings with a minimalist vibe set in a relaxed, yet chic scene. If you are feeling social, grab a seat at one of the communal tables, or for more private dining there are intimate corners. Basho also has an outdoor patio with retractable awnings as well as a sushi bar, raw bar and sleek, wraparound liquor bar. Visit bashosushi.com for more information.

Red Sox Nation Loves Fenway Park

Picture 42While Fenway Park may be known as one of the smallest stadiums in the major leagues and the oldest major league stadium in current use, it also may be the one with the most history. Originally opened in 1912 in Kenmore Square, the home of the Boston Red Sox has been revamped and expanded in later years to include the Green Monster, the 37-foot-high left-field wall, right field roof, clubhouse with upscale dining and even dugout seating. While there has been talk of replacing the old wooden seats with newer more comfortable ones, die hard fans have continuously voted against the upgrades to preserve the history it is so well known for. Be sure to get your tickets as soon as they go on sale for the season as every game has sold out since May 15, 2003. The whole experience is steeped in tradition – from Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” being sung by fans during the eighth inning, the manual scoreboard to the organ to the Boston-accented hecklers.

Insider’s Tip: Remember, Massachusetts liquor laws are strict; beer vendors do not wander the stands, so you’ll have to get your brew yourself. And bring ID, even if you haven’t needed it in years. Daytime tours of the stadium are also available; see the website for more information. In the summer months, don’t miss the star-studded concerts held here (past performances include The Rolling Stones, The Police and The Dave Matthews Band).
