Known as Restaurant Row, the intersection of Peterborough and Kilmanrock streets in Fenway, is home to seven distinct and unique restaurants. In less than 100 yards, one can experience food styles from Japan, Greece, Iran, Thaliand, France, and the USA. Restaurant Row is also home to El Pelon, rated one of the best burritos in the country. After a fire in January 2009 destroyed most of the restaurants on Restaurant Row it took almost three years of rebuilding but the restaurants re-opened and have resumed their importance and place in the neighborhood.
The diversity and abundance of food styles on Restaurant Row is truly representative of the restaurant scene in Boston as a whole. Within the 89.6 square miles of Boston’s city limits, there are few countries that remain unrepresented. With a T-Pass and a large appetite, in one day one could try fare from Germany, Iran, Thailand, France, Ethiopia, Mexico, Malaysia, Jamaica, Canada, China, India, Afghanistan, Spain, France, Senegal and of course, Italy.
Boston based company, inquisEATive, organizes tasting events with restaurants around the city. For one flat price, you can try several of a restaurant’s favorite options. The next event is tonight between 6:00pm and 8:00 pm at Jacob Wirth in the Theater District. The theme is Oktoberfest!
