Herbivores and beer lovers, rejoice! PlantPub, the popular meat-free eatery from chef Mary Dumont and craft beer guru Pat McAuley, is opening its second location right by Fenway on Friday, July 15th with their partners at Matthew Kenney Cuisine.
Located at 61 Brookline Ave (where Boston Beer Works used to be), the new restaurant takes its cues from it Cambridge-based sister (which opened in September of last year), offering sustainably-sourced, plant-based versions of classic pub fare (burgers, nachos, pizza and more) as well as some Fenway-specific dishes for sports fans and concert-goers (look for The Hot Dog: a plant-based interpretation a Fenway Frank).
In keeping with their “Eat Plants. Drink Beer.” philosophy, the beverage program features session brews alongside McAuley’s hand-picked regional IPAs, with more than 24 draught lines. Along with wine by the bottle and on tap, a robust non-alcoholic program is accompanied by a selection of craft cocktails exclusive to Fenway, designed by Bar Director Liz Driscoll.
The 8,000 square foot industrial-style space, awash in black and white (it’s kinda their thing) also features a colorful mural created by local artist Brand Rockwell. You can grab a stool at either of two bars, or snag a seat at one of the beer-hall style tables in the dining room. There are also banquettes along the garage windows, which can open for al fresco dining during the warm weather.
PlantPub Fenway will be open from 11:00am to 11:00pm daily for food and 1:00am for drink so stop by next time you’re heading to a game or, better yet, when you’re not. In the meantime, you can scope out the menu online here and keep an eye on their Insta for updates and additional info.
