A Farewell to Hamersley’s

Our eighth anniversary seemed like the perfect time to have a farewell dinner at Hamersley’s Bistro in Boston’s South End. This spot has been an institution in the city for the 27 years it has been opened, and it will certainly be missed. Classics like this don’t come along often, and along with places like Icarus, Hamersley’s helped to define the South End as a dining destination. Gordon Hamersley, in his signature cap, is so well known and loved around the city. . . let’s hope his future continues to include gracing Bostonians with inspired cuisine and perfect wine pairings!

Hamersley’s Bistro was the perfect choice to toast to eight years married (11 years together!). Wishing Gordon and Fiona Hamersley the absolute best in their future!
