Loretta’s Last Call opens near Fenway Park

Goodbye, La Verdad; hello, Loretta’s Last Call. The newest venture from the Lyons Group — the team behind nightspots like Sonsie and Back Bay Social Club — opens this evening at 1 Lansdowne St., replacing Ken Oringer’s taqueria. The country restaurant and bar will specialize in beer, moonshine, live bluegrass music, and Southern cuisine, such as fried pickles and jalapanos, hushpuppies with honey bourbon butter, and chicken and sausage gumbo. FYI: Last call is at 2 a.m.
