Just days after three notable Boston restaurants served their last meals, another prominent local dining spot is preparing to close its doors.

Durgin-Park will close on Jan.12, according to WBZ-TV’s Kristina Rex. In a tweet posted on Jan. 3, she wrote that Ark Restaurants CEO Michael Weinstein confirmed the news to her.

“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 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.
