If you ever wanted to eat Chinese food inside a Howard Johnson hotel within walking distance of Fenway Park, 2014 will not be your year. Boston Restaurant Talk reports the not-entirely-surprising news that Hong Kong Cafe inside the Fenway Howard Johnson on Boylston St. has closed. Forebodingly, its bar, the Tiki Hideaway, closed on December 13.


The restaurant boasted an array of Mandarin and Hong Kong-style dishes, and because it was inside a Howard Johnson, it also served burgers and hot dogs.

As of now, the hotel at 1271 Boylston St. lives on.

Update: On a happier note, a restaurant staffer says that Hong Kong Cafe has moved to 1391 Beacon St. in Brookline.
