Spring fever has quickly taken over Beantown, and Red Sox season is chief of this amazing craze. Not only are Bostonians patriotically sporting their Sox caps and fitting apparel, urbanites all around are excited to get back into this town’s beloved ball season…with all of the bars around Fenway Park most certainly included!
Although Fenway staple bar and restaurant, Audubon Circle, has closed, the 2014 ball season welcomes a newcomer into its plays to spice things up. Each season is always the right time for a game changer to keep things lively around the Park. Newly opened Audubon came just at the perfect time for the Red Sox’ opening day, replacing the Audubon Circle restaurant, and making fans go crazy with anticipation and excitement. Although Audubon Circle will be missed, Audubon will most certainly make its mark with delicious delights…pleasing the palate of each and every lively Sox fan, Bostonian and visitor.
What’s more awesome than a steel drinking rail to gear up for the ball game? Audubon pleases its fans with the trendiest setup in town, its steel drinking rail being a classic novelty for enjoying a couple of brews…or a few. And the beer selection itself? Audubon offers its thirsty guests eight tasty taps-a-flowing with “local brew” and an exclusively renovated cocktail menu. So you can start off and end the game on a good note.
Have you ever heard of a pork muffuletta? Well now’s your chance to divulge in the secrets of the trade, because Audubon is busy preparing this scrumptious creation for hungry game-goers. Audubon makes their muffuletta creatively with moist olive loaf, olive spread, provolone cheese and your choice of slaw or roasted potatoes. This venue takes cuisine up many notches when compared to traditional bar fare. With dishes like spring pea ravioli lathered in a light butter sauce, and cork husk flounder served with edamame, red bell pepper, grilled corn, arugula, brown rice and a unique cherry pepper chimichurri sauce, Audubon has a dish for everyone’s taste.
Be absolutely sure to check out Audubon’s epic backyard bamboo garden, reopening up to the public in May.
