Boston Landmark Durgin-Park To Close

Durgin-Park, a centuries-old Boston landmark that has long attracted tourists with its clam chowder, pot roast, and other quintessential New England Yankee fare, is closing its doors.

The Faneuil Hall restaurant will close on Jan. 12, according to restaurant manager Kenneth Thimothee, who cited financial reasons including an increased minimum wage.

“It’s very unfortunate, but the costs are too high,” he said.

The establishment lays a claim to being one of the oldest restaurants in the city. It’s named after John Durgin and Eldridge Park, who along with John Chandler opened it in 1827.

The Biggest Boston Eatery Travesty Since They Closed Buzzy's

BUZZY'S - the true story
***
Buzzy sold the restaurant during a strong real estate market and retired to Hawaii. The buyer had recently come to America with enough money to invest in real estate and businesses. Some of the most popular items on the menu, such as the knishes, were the old family recipe of the woman that worked there, possibly the owner's wife. I was told that when the real estate market slowed, he lost a lot of money and eventually was unable to pay taxes on the business. That was when it was closed down, perhaps in 1996.

Buzzy's was auctioned by the government to pay back taxes, which is when I picked it up.
