Reports: Jerry Remy's Fenway Park restaurant closes for good

According to multiple reports, Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grill, located just outside Fenway Park, has been closed. The franchise's other three locations -- Logan Airport, the Seaport District and Fall River (Remy's hometown) -- remain open. The blog Boston Restaurant Talk reports that the establishment is in bankruptcy and the landlord -- the Red Sox -- will not renew the lease due to the financial problems. The restaurant, at 1265 Boylston Street, opened in March 2010. Its roof deck overlooks Fenway Park's right-field wall. Remy came under heavy criticism last year when a Boston Globe report detailed how he had enabled and protected his son Jared, who had a long history of violence toward women before pleading guilty to first-degree murder last year in the 2013 killing of his live-in girlfriend. Remy, who also has battled cancer, took some time away from his job as NESN Red Sox color commentator before returning to the booth.
