838 Beacon Street

The Audubon is a short distance from Fenway Park, close enough to walk, but far enough that you won’t get the absolutely packed crowds like the places on Lansdowne. This isn’t a burger or pizza joint; it’s a sit down restaurant with entrees in the $10 to $20 range. There is an extensive beer list and wines, as well. Audubon does not take reservations.
