One of Boston's most famous restaurants, Union Oyster House (established in 1826) lays claim to being America's oldest restaurant. Today, a steady stream of out-of-towners stops by to follow in the footsteps of longtime regulars Daniel Webster and JFK. Historic pictures and wooden booths manage to project a sense of authenticity. Those looking to sample old-time Yankee cooking enjoy everything from broiled scrod and lobster Newburg to Boston baked beans. Most in demand are the seats at the historic wooden raw bar, where affable shuckers put out platters of Blue Points and cherrystones.
