Boston: Union Oyster House

Location:

41 Union Street  Boston, MA 02108

Yes, it's America's OLDEST restaurant (in terms of being open for continuous service), and was established in 1826.

1826!!

The recipes possibly date back as far as then, too. To a time when perhaps seasoning wasn't available, for the blandest of bland meals can be eaten here.

Good clam chowder, if the simple ingredients of cream, potatoes and bits of clam, could possibly be screwed up.

Potatoes tasted like dirt.

The asparagus and beans weren't cooked fully.

The biscuit barely saved my meal from being a total disaster. I even overheard someone complaining that his daughter ran out with an upset stomach from the scallops.

Shame on us for taking guests from out of town there.
