This Kenmore Square gem is the closest great meal from Fenway Park. Go after all the items on the charcuterie portion of the menu: sweetbreads, bone marrow, cured meats. The fennel soup is also strong. The place is loaded with grad students and professors and Red Sox fans. The hotel is 5-Star. Get a room on the east side of the building for an all-night view of Fenway.

Went here for lunch with co-workers and had oysters and calamari to start, which was great. I ordered the lobster crepes for my entree and it was just ok - kind of bland but still tasted like lobster. Seems like the kitchen was pretty busy which may be why it wasn't that great because stuff was taking kind of a long time to come out during the busy lunch rush. I'd go back again but maybe when they are less busy and in warmer weather so I could sit outside and people watch.

A little pricey, but the brunch was awsome.

Best Bloody Mary I've ever had. They had an excellent egg-white scramble and great atmosphere! Service was top notch.

Went for an overpriced, okay-tasting brunch.
