American History X

Fenmore American Bistro is here to rewrite history


Unless you're Dan Brown, rewriting history can get tricky (nice try, Discovery Channel).
But you can bridge the gap between past and present on your next tour of historic Kenmore Square at Fenmore American Bistro, the neighborhood's newest and most beer-stocked stop.
Some of you may have already written your own histories in this 116-year-old space below the Hotel Buckminister, which formerly housed raucous sushi/karaoke bar Maluken. You're not the only ones — it's also where Joe Sullivan fixed the 1919 World Series and the site of legendary jazz club Storyville.
But you have new chapters to write, hopefully ones that involve curling up in a booth with your new from-out-of-town date over Maine lobster sliders and clam chowder.
A full liquor license is on for the future, but that's fine: practice drinking one of eight drafts or over 20 bottled beers in true Boston tradition, before completing your introduction to the city with a trip to Fenway around the corner. 

If Da Vinci could hide a conspiracy, then who knows what the Green Monster's got in its underbelly.
