Some things have changed since Hamersley’s opened, originally a few doors down the road on Tremont, in 1987. They now have fancier digs with more seating, a private dining room, and a brick patio for casual outdoor eating. The most important things, though, have stayed the same.

The French-American bistro menu is still award-winning. They still make gracious hospitality their first priority. They’re still the friendly place that welcomes walk-in diners. And you’ll still see chef-owner Gordon Hamersley most nights, sporting his trademark baseball cap, cooking up a storm in the open kitchen.
