"Not the best"
Brookline Ave. runs from kenmore square passed fenway park and into the town of brookline. Because of the ball park there are a number of sports bars and restaurants. These are all overpriced and not fantastic so unless you're looking for game day convienience (get there early) it's not worth going out of your way. Many of the stores are only open during the season or on game days so on non game days there are a lot of places that are just closed. There is also a little mall and a bunch of new store fronts that are nice as well as a movie theater. Most of the restaurants are chain restaurants and don't really compare to the really good food you can get at the local eateries a few blocks away.
