Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grill in Boston's Fenway Neighborhood Has Closed
The original location of a group of restaurants that a former Red Sox player (and current broadcaster) was behind has shut its doors.
According to a reliable source, Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill in the Fenway neighborhood of Boston was shuttered today, with no one answering the phones there. A call placed to the Seaport District location confirmed that the Boylston Street restaurant is closed "permanently," though the Seaport outlet remains open--and it appears that the Logan Airport and Fall River outlets are still in operation as well. The source mentions that the Fenway location is apparently in bankruptcy, and the landlord (the Boston Red Sox) is not going to be renewing the lease because of the tenant being in arrears.
[March 5 update: We have yet to confirm that the Fenway location of Jerry Remy's went bankrupt, but an article in The Boston Globe reports that the restaurant was indeed having financial difficulties, based on information from a former executive chef there. (The post also says that it is not known what will happen with the space.]
[March 24 update: A note sent from The Cronin Group today squelches a rumor that has been going around, with the message saying there are no plans to bring a location of Tony C's to the former Jerry Remy's space in the Fenway.]
Jerry Remy's first opened in the Fenway in March of 2010.
The address for this now-closed restaurant in the Fenway was: Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grill, 1265 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02215. The website can be found at: http://www.jerryremys.com/
[March 28 update: According to an article in The Boston Herald, the Boylston Street location of Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill is planning to reopen April 13 under new ownership and management.]
