The much ballyhooed Jerry Remy Sports Bar and Grill opened this week at 1265 Boylston St., just a block from Fenway (in fact, the back of the bar has large windows that are just across from Fenway Park on Van Ness Street). Remy and his partners have sunk $5 million into the restaurant and bar, which includes huge TVs and a full menu of appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, steaks and other entrees. Nothing on the menu is very expensive, but nothing is all that inexpensive either. With the exception of 3 of the steaks, all the sandwiches, burgers, and entrees are between $9 and $19.
The restaurant is likely to be very successful, particularly for the novelty factor and the fact that Remy is so well-liked by the majority of Red Sox Nation. We'll have to wait and see how it does on nights when there is no Red Sox game at Fenway.
