When you’re in Boston, consider grabbing a bite at The Union Oyster House!

Established in 1826, the Union Oyster House is America’s oldest restaurant. Since its opening, the restaurant has known only three owners. Located on the Freedom Trail the restaurant is housed in a building dating back to Pre-Revolutionary days and it is now considered a National Historic Landmark. The Union Oyster House was frequented by famous people in history, such as the Kennedy clan and Daniel Webster. It was at this venue were Daniel Webster would have his daily tall tumbler of brandy and water. With each glass, he’d also consume a half-dozen oysters, seldom having less than six plates.

Another fun fact, it has been said that the toothpick became first popularized in America at the Oyster House. Enterprising Charles Forster of Maine first imported the picks from South America. To promote his new business, he hired Harvard boys to dine at the Union Oyster House and ask for toothpicks.

The Oyster House serves traditional New England flare, including all kinds of seafood, such as oysters, clams, and lobsters, as well as poultry, baked beans, steak, and chops. Awarded by Forbes, the National Restaurant Association, USA Today, the American Culinary Federation and Condé Nast — this is a venue worth checking out!
