As one of Boston’s most venerable landmarks and Fanueuil Hall’s oldest restaurant (est. 1827), Durgin-Park serves classic New England chowders, Indian puddings, Boston baked beans, aged prime rib, steaks, shanks, the freshest seafood dinners, pastas and sandwiches. Celebrities, business men and women, students and tourists from every part of the globe visit Durgin-Park for its Yankee-style cuisine, affectionately cantankerous wait-staff and historical lore. To experience Durgin-Park’s made-from-scratch sensibility is to taste the revolutionary fervor that made the Cradle of Liberty what it has always been, a place where the Old World tempts the New, and both are better off for the company. History is served!
For well over a century, Durgin-Park has catered to the hearty appetites of straw-hatted, white-aproned market men and local characters. While the origin of Durgin-Park goes back to Revolutionary days, the era of fame for its chowders, Indian puddings, apple pan dowdy, johnny cake and New England boiled dinners started some 170 years ago when John Durgin in partnership with Eldridge Park, a livery man and John G. Chandler, a dry-goods merchant took over. The theme followed to this day was decided upon then by these old Yankees, that the best advertising is plenty of food on the table.
Visit the hideout, a beer garden at Faneuil Hall, for a beer with your pals or the main dining room for a hearty meal with family and friends. This is a Boston landmark that no tourist with a penchant for history should miss.
