Fenway Park casts its majestic shadow over Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill at Fenway, where a pair of colossal projection TVs flickers across a 34-seat full-service bar and an ample dining room laden with hearty comfort cuisine. Culled from the cranium of executive chef Jackie Kelly, the seasonal menu primes palates for homestyle entrees with the Green Monster’s shareable salver of buffalo wings, sliders, onion rings, and gravy-smothered chips ($35). A piping-hot saucer of chicken noodle soup ($6) pairs with a zesty pulled-pork sandwich ($11) to thaw frost-flecked taste buds chilled from succumbing to frozen-flagpole dares. Cheddar cheese, grilled onions, and bacon pile onto the Remy burger’s sizzling slab of USDA Prime beef ($11), and the cavatelle pasta’s panoply of basil pesto, sweet tomatoes, and parmesan ($11+) appeals to herbivorous diners and the gluten-averse.
More than 20 draft beers—including Samuel Adams and Two Brothers—pour from foamy taps at the burnished-wood bar. An ample wine list irrigates arid cheering sections beneath the sizeable projection TVs, which are flanked by 24 additional flat screens and a troupe of street mimes reenacting notable plays.
Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill at Fenway
Yes, you can hear the cheers of Red Sox fan's during a home game at Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill at Fenway. And the park's right field wall is easily viewed from a spacious rooftop deck. But the interior is what really reminds you that you're dining at the brainchild of the Sox's beloved announcer and former second baseman. Katharine Q. Seelye of The New York Times said in a 2010 article, "The most striking feature inside the restaurant is the view—on television. Two outsize high-definition televisions, measuring 11 feet long and costing $225,000 each, hang above the bar." The "screen monsters" make you wonder if you've stumbled onto the floor of the New York Stock Exchange or a spaceship control-deck manned by extraterrestrial sports fans. If you can't find a seat near the bar, there are 30 60-inch high-def televisions scattered throughout the pub.
Jerry Remy's generously portioned menu has caught as much attention as its collection of huge TVs. Robert Nadeau of the Boston Phoenix said, "Most of the scoring on this menu comes out of a Texas-style barbecue smoker," citing the authentic taste of the beef brisket and the juiciness of the smoked half-chicken. Bella English of the Boston Globe agreed that the large smoker located in the parking lot makes “succulent brisket, ribs, and chicken,” and reported that the huge desserts "must be seen to be believed."
The menu is oversized and features big plates of typical bar food. Everything is homemade, “down to the salad dressing,’’ our friendly waiter tells usBella English, Boston Globe, 6/2/10
