I stumbled upon this sad news accidently. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Had to Google it myself.
Wow. Talk about the sad end to a legendary property. A true part of Boston’s colorful history.
I first went to ‘Durgin Park‘ 32-years ago, in September of 1986. I am sure I was told that it was Boston’s OLDEST restaurant. Well, they have modified that claim.
I am surprised that they are struggling. They always looked full. Yes, I haven’t eaten there in some years. I confess to that.
It was such a fun place. Great atmosphere.
I am sad. I can’t believe that they couldn’t have kept it going.
