Tucked in Faneuil Hall stands one of Boston’s oldest and most venerable landmarks, Durgin-Park. It has served as the Cradle of Liberty’s faithful commissary, feeding generations of Bostonians and travelers.

Boston Tea Party

Before the Boston Tea Party and the unpleasantness of taxation without representation, market-men and sailors would dine at Durgin-Park. Back then it was known as the market dining room in Faneuil Hall. In 1827 John Durgin, Eldridge Park and John G. Chandler purchased the restaurant. Under their influence, Durgin-Park garnered a reputation for serving traditional Yankee-cooking with a side of sass from its sharp-tongued waitresses.

A Family Tradition

Since the Civil War, only four families have owned the restaurant. Each preserving the age-old traditions of cooking the Boston baked beans in stone crocks, slow aging the prime rib, and serving hefty portions of made-from-scratch, New England comfort food. Step into Durgin-Park today and be suspended in Boston History. The dining room is still arranged with communal tables and the food is served with refined curtness of the wait-staff.
