Anyone who has read my entries before knows that I love older establishments; restaurants that have been serving quality for years if not decades. I may have taken this love to an extreme with my visit to Union Oyster House in Boston, MA. Union Oyster House holds the distinction of being the oldest restaurant in the United States. They have been operating from the same location since 1826. It is so old that records of its creation don’t exist. Needless to say, if you can stay in business that long you’re doing it right. The restaurant is located just around the corner from Faneuil Hall, Boston’s most popular tourist destination so its a little touristy but they handle it well.
