Todd English's Kingfish Hall Restaurant in Faneuil Hall Faces Eviction

A popular seafood restaurant in Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace that is owned by one of the most famous chefs in the country faces a possible closure, as eviction proceedings are apparently in the works.

According to an article in The Boston Globe, Kingfish Hall in the South Market Building of Faneuil Hall has fallen behind in rent payments, resulting in the start of eviction procedures against Todd English's well-known eatery very soon (a hearing looks to be happening next week). The Globe mentions that Kingfish Hall is one of several businesses in the tourist-oriented Faneuil Hall Marketplace that faces possible eviction--or has already been evicted--including Bill Rodgers Running Shop in the former category and Bombay Club and Henri's Glassworks in the latter category.

Kingfish Hall features a mix of regional classics and fresh seafood dishes, including such items as clam chowder, calamari, tuna tartare, lobster rolls, shrimp pasta, seafood linguini, grilled swordfish, roasted chicken, and steak frites. The restaurant also has a raw bar.

The address for Kingfish Hall is: Kingfish Hall, 188 South Market Building, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston, MA, 02109. The website for the restaurant can be found at:
