The oldest restaurant in Boston (which is on the National Register of Historic Places) jumped on the 19th-century oyster craze long before any other raw bars in the city even existed. The place, whose wooden floors, booths, and ceiling rafters are all original, has a history of catering to famous politicians, like Civil War-era senator Daniel Webster. On the second floor you’ll find a booth dedicated to former regular JFK.
