Boston’s Union Oyster House has seafood known ‘round the world. The historic landmark is one of the most legendary restaurants across the globe, according to a new report from Taste Atlas.
Thanks to its classic clam chowder and ye olde New England decor, Union Oyster House nabbed the No. 43 spot on the list of 150 world-renowned establishments. The distinction comes as no surprise, seeing that it’s the oldest continuously-running restaurant in the country. Founded in 1826, the eatery and tavern brims with history, from its role in the American revolution, to the “Kennedy Booth” that honors John F. Kennedy’s frequent visits.
The restaurant is the only New England entry in the report, although 13 other restaurants rep the US, including Katz’s Delicatessan in New York City, which snagged the No. 2 spot.
