Update: Faneuil Hall Manager Says The Salty Dog Is Not Being Evicted
[Ed note: This article was updated on December 16 to reflect new information given.]
It looks like a report that a Faneuil Hall restaurant and bar could be kicked out of its home after 40 years in business may not be true after all.
An article (that has since been edited) from a few days ago on the NorthEndWaterfront.com site (via a Twitter post from @ConciergeBoston) had mentioned that The Salty Dog Seafood Grille & Bar was reportedly being evicted as part of changes coming to Faneuil Hall. Now, according to a post from Universal Hub and another article from BostInno, it appears that this might not be the case, as Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp. says they have not evicted the dining and drinking spot and have no plans to do so. BostInno goes on to mention that they were not able to get in touch with reps for The Salty Dog as of Monday evening. (As soon as anyone hears from the restaurant, we will post another update here.)
The Salty Dog, which first opened in the mid-1970s, has been a popular spot with tourists over the years, offering such items as stuffed quahogs, crab cakes, clam rolls, fried shrimp, baked scrod, and lobster.
The address for this seafood restaurant and bar at Faneuil Hall is: The Salty Dog Seafood Grille & Bar, 206 South Market Street, Boston, MA, 02109.
