It'll be an epic celebration tomorrow, and we'll need to eat. For those of you heading into town for the game, we've rounded up several terrific dining and drinking options on the parade route, especially along Boylston St, the epicenter of the festivities. Stop in during or after the party.
528 Commonwealth Ave., Boston
This ultra-friendly boite just steps from Fenway serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and potent cocktails. The warmed patio is the place to be. Bonus: Service is great, and they're kid-friendly.
The Lower Depths
476 Commonwealth Ave., Boston
Three words: tater tot platters — topped with everything from cheese dip to cheese curds to chili. It's the quintessential Fenway pub.
911 Boylston St., Boston
This classic Irish pub and sports bar will be jammed, we're sure. Arrive early. Doors open at 9 a.m. just for the occasion.
Towne Stove and Spirits
900 Boylston St., Boston
This cozy spot opens for brunch at 11 a.m. and offers a boozy Big Papi cocktail. Service is efficient, and the dining room is generally quiet, which is nice if you need to steal away from the chaos.
Bay Back Social Club
867 Boylston St., Boston
Grab a swanky $22 burger at this civilized bar and dining room, and stay late: Cocktails are served until 1:45am.
755 Boylston St., Boston
Forum is a special place to watch the parade: The newly refurbished restaurant was heavily damaged during the Marathon bombings. They have unobstructed parade views and tables that accommodate large parties, plus a Red Sox-themed cocktail and food menu tomorrow.
Solas Irish Pub
710 Boylston St., Boston
The Irish pub will open at 10 a.m. and offer morning specials (think breakfast burgers) for the parade. It's never too early for a Guinness, right?
Poe's Kitchen at the Rattlesnake
384 Boylston St., Boston
This festive spot is the best place for wacky Mexican-Latin-and-who-knows-what-else fusion: Chef Brian Poe just added a Latin-style Porchetta sandwich with roasted pork belly and mushroom ragout to his lunch menu. Poe's opens at 8 a.m. tomorrow for the occasion, and the roofdeck will also be open for prime viewing.
50 Dalton St., Boston
Steps from the parade route, Bukowski's is all you want a tavern to be: gritty, dive-y, delicious. Get the new beer-battered banana pepper boat with Thousand Island dipping sauce, and remember that it's cash only. It opens at 11:30, so it's a good post-revelry pitstop.
The parade begins at 10 a.m. at Fenway Park.
