McCormick & Schmick's at the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston Has Closed

One of the two Boston locations of an upscale seafood and steak place has closed.

According to a poster on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook page, McCormick & Schmick's at the Park Plaza Hotel is no longer in operation, with a phone call placed to the dining spot confirming this--and also confirming that its other location at Faneuil Hall is still open for business. It is not known exactly why the restaurant shut down, though it may have something to do with the renovations that have been made to the hotel over recent months, which includes the recent opening of Off the Common restaurant and Strip by Strega. (Other spots in the hotel are Finale and MJ O'Connor's, with Smith & Wollensky also being affiliated with the hotel and located across from it.)

McCormick & Schmick's first started out in the 1970s and today has more than 80 locations across the country. The restaurants feature such items as steamed mussels, swordfish casino, blackened mahi mahi, salmon rigatoni, filet mignon, and New York strip.
