Update: Tony's Clam Shop in Quincy Reopens for the Season March 25, 2016

[Ed note: This article was updated to reflect a last-minute decision by Tony's to open earlier than had been previously thought.]

A popular seafood spot in Quincy is getting ready to reopen for the season.

According to a post on its Facebook page, Tony's Clam Shop at Wollaston Beach is hoping to reopen tomorrow (Friday, March 25), featuring an array of seafood dishes, classic American fare, and more once again. Earlier this month, the dining spot announced that its founder Tony Kandalaft--who had first opened the place back in 1964--had passed away, saying that "Wollaston beach lost a legend....If you met Tony you knew the genuine, generous, hard working man we love. We will miss him."
