Tremont Street shops

When you visit CAJ House, you not only get our undivided attention, you are also immersed in an eco – system (nice term I picked up from my tree hugging days!) made up of small, locally owned shops. These shop visits provide original Bostonian items which can make your visit to Boston unforgettable and provide food and services which are mostly from local farms and businesses. At the same time you are strengthening our local economy.

Walking for just two blocks north on Tremont Street, shops will be on both sides (take a left outside 677 Tremont Street) there are at least 14 businesses owned by locals and two national chain (caldwell banker and starbucks) By shopping here, you are exercising your legs and lungs! Side benefits: you are reducing pollution and you are helping our neighborhood remain vibrant and strong and attractive and allow us to continue offering original stuff you cannot find elsewhere and which make Boston different from any other city.

Below I am providing a quick photo walk of some of these business. Please feel free to comment or send me ideas!

Tale from Restaurant Row, South End

Tales from Boston: A Restaurant to Remember

There are plenty of attractions in Boston, including art galleries, museums, performing arts centers, and plenty of shopping opportunities too. The greatest attractions though, are perhaps the restaurants in Boston, and eminent among them for nigh on 27 years, has been Hamersley’s Bistro. Yet, it is no longer to continue, for the world famous Gordon Hamersley has decided, at long last, to hang up his hat for good.

Yes, as unfortunate as it is, Hamersley’s Bistro will be closing soon, and so will end the saga of one of the greatest restaurants the city of Boston has ever known.

However, not all is lost and forlorn. For there was a time, when South End was home to merely two decent restaurants, and they were Icarus and Calypso. Then Calypso shut down, and the opening of Hamersley’s was actually a time of disappointment for South End Pioneers, as it opened in the space previously occupied by Calypso, which was one of the only good places to hang out at for an evening.

Hamersley’s Bistro proved everyone wrong though, and quickly established itself as a restaurant of note, and became famous for its delectable offerings – a truly delightful mix of American and Italian and French cuisine. So great was the impact of Hamersley’s in fact, that half a dozen and more restaurants cropped up nearby over the next few years, and transformed South End into the epicenter of culinary experimentation and high brow eating in all of Boston.
Today, there are 36 restaurants in South End which earned it the title restaurant row. And it all started when Gordon Hamersley decided to give the neighborhood a chance, and opened his bistro on Tremont Street.
If you have cause to be in Boston then, and you know you will be here for a while yet, then choose CAJ House for highly affordable and eminently comfortable apartments available at short term rentals, located just steps away from Restaurant Row Tremont Street, and experience all the culinary delights which South End has to offer. Who knows, you may even be lucky enough to be one of the last customers to ever eat at the renowned Hamersley’s Bistro.
