Durgin-Park Market Dining Room Review

You should be hungry enough to cope with enormous portions, yet not so hungry you can't tolerate a long wait (or sharing a table with others). Durgin-Park was serving its same hearty New England fare (Indian pudding, baked beans, corned beef and cabbage, and a prime rib that hangs over the edge of the plate) back when Faneuil Hall was a working market instead of a tourist attraction. The service is as brusque as it was when fishmongers and boat captains dined here, but that's just part of its charm.

    The best of its kind

    There aren't very many places left that serve traditional Yankee comfort food cuisine (think pot roast, prime rib, potted beef with onions, baked scrod, molasses baked beans, Indian pudding with ice cream, coffee jello) at a relatively reasonable price locally anymore, and this is by far the best of the lot. Much of the seating is at long communal tables and the service can be grumpy in an amusing way. But this is the best of its kind by far -- a must.
