weet Caroline’s takes natural and organic to new heights, with a living vertical garden along one wall—its own Green Monster, the restaurant likes to say. The multilevel space, well situated in the hot new Fenway row of restaurants and bars, also uses reclaimed wood, including on an outdoor patio, and has 11 flat-screen HD TVs to watch the games from nearby Fenway over a menu of comfort food.

The inspiration for “Sweet Caroline,” released by singer Neil Diamond in 1969, was a photograph of President John F. Kennedy’s daughter Caroline—who was 11 at the time—riding a pony. Diamond sang it to her at her 50th birthday party in 2007. Since 2002, it has been played in the middle of the eighth inning of every Red Sox game at Fenway Park, for no other reason than that a ballpark employee liked the song.
