UPON A NEIGHBORLY STROLL DOWN CRESCENT ALLEY, YOU STUMBLE UPON BLAKE’S.
This is where our story begins. A very special, dim-lit kitchen and bar named after a man, nay a legend, who once worked within these hallowed walls as a nineteenth century inventor. Innovating steam pump design and contributing to Boston’s expansion, he was a brilliant businessman and captain of industry. He is, the one we refer to only as – Blake. But who really was Blake, you ask? Despite his rare gifts and extraordinary work ethic, in fact, Blake was much like you or me. He loved to travel, to bask in the culture of the world at large. A character not without mischief, he loved to pop out for a pint, to sing, to dance, and to talk, all while getting into some light-hearted trouble. Simply put, Blake knew how to live life and that same spirit infuses our establishment that bears his name. We like to think there’s a Blake in all of us. Come see for yourself. Be sure to take it easy, and stay a while.
