For well over a century, Durgin-Park has catered to the hearty appetites of straw-hatted, white-aproned market men and local characters. Today it hosts visiting celebrities, business men and women, students and tourists from every part of the globe. 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.
Take part in Boston history as you step into one of the oldest continuously running establishments in the country. Choose from a wide selection of comfort food and classic New England fare such as clam chowder or the signature prime rib steak. 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.
