Fenway fave celebrates five years

Because they already have plenty of silverware and, um, wood (?), the proprietors of Fenway's Church are eschewing traditional anniversary gifts in lieu of ringing in their restaurant's 5th with a sexy new menu that says, we still love you, except when you tip below 18%. First Date Fare: Settle in for some early round parsing of your online profile over snacks like cilantro-sprinkled duck confit tacos w/ picked shallots and chayote slaw, or a Cajun-inspired crawfish ettouffee sided by grilled sourdough and crispy leeks.Moving In Together: Make your case for hanging that extremely chill Moe. poster above the living room couch while plowing through a series of sliders (BBQ braised pork belly w/ tomato chutney, etc.) before advancing onto pan-fried pierogies w/ sweet onion relish, and the bacon, caramelized onion, and creme fraiche Flammkuchen flatbread. Happily Fat/Married: Those who no longer count calories or wear belts can indulge in spicy sausage orrechiette in a house marinara w/ shaved ricotta salata, crispy cod cakes & bacon-braised kale, or chimichurri-sauced steak tips w/ truffle-parm fries & skillet cornbread -- though just make sure that when they ask if you want it doused maple butter, you say "I do".
