I have always loved Durgin Park restaurant in Boston, Mass.,
as, fortunately, they never found a reason to change its traditional
New England menu. Why change something that is so good?

Amazingly, Durgin Park has been around since the early 1800s
("Established Before You Were Born," as they say) and keeps
the endearing tradition of sometimes hiring brusque waitresses --
although it's nowhere near as pronounced as in previous generations.
Ultimately, though, it's the food that keeps Durgin Park thriving --
you'd be hard-pressed to find a better selection of traditional local
food favorites in Boston.
For those who love New England clam chowder, Yankee pot roast, Boston
schrod, Boston baked beans, Surf and Turf (sirloin steak with choice of
1 1/4 lb. lobster steamed or baked stuffed, baked shrimp, baked
scallops), fried Ipswich clams, New England corned beef with cabbage,
chicken pot pie, prime rib, Indian pudding, and Boston Cream Pie, you
Durgin Park New England clam chowder.

Located in the heart of historic Faneuil Hall,
Durgin Park offers a true New England atmosphere as does the restored
brick buildings featuring retail shops, restaurants, bakeries and ice
Durgin Park is a great dining introduction to Boston, a place where you
can feel the flavor of the "Hub of the Universe" while feasting on its
favorite foods throughout the years. You might not get fried alligator
with okra and hand-rubbed saffron (trendy reference), but then again,
we Bostonians were
never really wired for that pretentious kind of cuisine!
