Just days after three notable Boston restaurants served their last meals, another prominent local dining spot is preparing to close its doors.
BREAKING: Michael Weinstein, CEO of Ark Restaurants, confirms to me that @Durgin_Park, a Faneuil Hall staple since 1827, will be closing on January 12th. Restaurant employees were told yesterday. He says the closing is inevitable, as the restaurant is not profitable anymore. #WBZ pic.twitter.com/yKtIUqHjt5

“Restaurant employees were told yesterday,” Rex tweeted. “He says the closing is inevitable, as the restaurant is not profitable anymore.”
Joe O’Malley, general manager of Faneuil Hall Marketplace, said in a statement to Boston.com Friday that “Durgin-Park is still under a lease agreement with Faneuil Hall Marketplace. No formal closing notification has been submitted.”
Since 1827, Durgin-Park has served up what its website describes as “Yankee-style cuisine,” including menu items such as clam chowder and baked beans.
