The Chicken Bone on Bar Rescue

Anyone else catch the Bone on Bar Rescue? It reinforced my feeling of downhill product in the last few years.And the whole family freindly thing. I wrote it off after they started kids kareoke on Sundays.

  1. Yes, saw it. Used to go there back in the '90s for the wings. Didn't even know they had opened (and closed) a Boston location.

    1. It's difficult to watch that type of show when you're familiar with a place. I never understood advertising it as family friendly, IMO it was just a divey spot. Unless you're willing to make the effort to change, advertising does nothing. The show didn't make me want to get out and try it.

          The Chicken Bone near Fenway Park was a quick failure, followed by another quick failure by the same operator (Fenway Cantina). The spot will be the new home to Sweet Caroline's, which at the very least is a failure of taste in naming.

        2. I thought it was pretty hysterical that this was the same place that I see the Phantom Gourmet boys pimping fairly regularly.

          1. Interesting timing for the show.

            We had a building party catered by them some time back..nothing special.

            They did have 1 distinguished customer; unfortunately overserved recently.

              It's not clear to me from the news accounts if their famous customer was actually drinking there, or was just arrested in front of it. Pretty big PR week for the Chicken Bone, regardless.

                Good point. Not clear to me either.
