A restaurant in the Fenway area has closed for good, but a new place is already slated to take over its baseball-friendly location, and the owners are the same. Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill on Boylston is no more, and Tony C's, which has locations in Somerville and Burlington, will become the new occupant, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. (Update: It is already open.)
When the 1265 Boylston St. restaurant closed temporarily last year and eventually reopened more than a month later, it did so under new ownership and management — The Cronin Group, which also owns the Seaport District Jerry Remy's as well as the Tony C's brand. Now, Tony C's, which is named in honor of the former Red Sox player Anthony "Tony" Conigliaro, has updated its website to include the Jerry Remy's space as its newest location, and the Jerry Remy's Fenway social media accounts have switched over to Tony C's branding.
Meanwhile, Boston Restaurant Talk also reports that Tony C's is expanding to the Seaport District, but it is not yet known whether it will be taking over that Jerry Remy's location too or opening in a different space.
Update 4/22, 1 p.m.: A Tony C's provided a statement from the restaurant's regional director, David Doyle:
"We are excited to expand the Tony C's brand to the Fenway neighborhood offering the same great menu and service as our other locations. As part of that effort we will continue to support the ‘Rally to Retire Tony Conigliaro's #25' and ask our fellow fans to do the same."
