"Established before you were born," says the sign outside Quincy Market staple Durgin Park. The menu, which is heavy on fried and broiled seafood and pasta, is almost entirely child-friendly. Locals and visitors to Boston alike will want to try the cooked-in-crocks baked beans.
In the area: Durgin Park is located in historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Walk around the stores and catch street performers in action before heading to the North End or to the New England Aquarium.
