Durgin Park is one of those Boston restaurant institutions that nobody from here actually visits. Itís a tourist destination, for sure, so it stands to reason that another location of the famed dining location should open at Logan Airport, where even fewer Bostonians will visit for a meal.
The 3,405 square-foot Logan location is now serving in Terminal E, featuring a menu touting the same traditional New England fare that the longtime Faneuil Hall location (above) has long been known for.
ďWe think itís vital to add restaurants and shops to our concessions programs that reflect the area and give travelers a sense of the regionís history, flavor and flair,Ē said Michael Caro, vice president of AIRMALL Boston. ďDurgin-Park brings an iconic piece of Boston culinary history to travelers, and we know it will become a destination at the airport.Ē
It really is a good strategy in order to attract more out-of-towners. Also, I just realized that Dine Boston, also in Terminal E, is a concept by former Red Sox outfielder Darren Lewis. Who knew?
