After spending Sunday afternoon at the Calderwood Pavilion for the Tony award-winning musical Fun Home, I had made reservations through Open Table for The Beehive restaurant right next door at 541 Tremont Street in South Boston, Massachusetts. It’s a charming and convenient place to enjoy after show cocktails, brunch, lunch, or dinner while featuring daily live music including jazz and tribute to famous musicians. Decorated subtly for Halloween and featuring a lit outdoor patio, The Beehive has unique charm and Bohemian décor in the South End on the orange line off of the Back Bay T stop.
At the time I made the reservation, the live band didn’t start until 8 p.m. The servers were friendly and asked about the performance I saw at the Calderwood. Pricing is a bit expensive, but the food is wonderful and can easily be shared. The artisan sour dough bread was seasoned with sea salt and topped with delicious honey butter. Our dinner dish, the half chicken was tender, flavorful and juicy mixed with carrot puree, bok choy, rainbow carrots, and olives in a peanut aillade. It was more than enough for two unless you prefer to take some home.
The Beehive is open seven days a week and located in the Back Bay, an area in Boston that features many theatrical options. The Beehive offers a special menu on holidays and are open on Thanksgiving. Take a closer look at the Beehive here for the menu, live music schedule, and much more.
