Baseball season arrives with a noticeable gap in the Fenway food scene, left by the Peterborough Street restaurants destroyed in a January fire. Ball fans will miss their pre- and post-game stops at Thornton's Fenway Grille, Rod Dee Thai Cuisine, El Pelon Taqueria, Greek Isles, Sorento's Italian Gourmet, and Umi Japanese Restaurant.
What to eat until they're rebuilt? (It might be a while.)
Cambridge 1 recently expanded beyond pizza. They're now also offering antipasto plates, sausage and white bean soup, and a few pasta dishes. (According to the Wall Street Journal, pizza's popularity is waning.)
Also, if a bit out of the way, M Bar & Lounge in the Mandarin Oriental hotel is offering opening day bento boxes on April 6. These include items such as Kobe sliders, lobster wontons, and, of course, hot dogs and chowder. You choose up to six, with each item $5-$7.
