Hook Lobster Boston

I awoke this morning to see an old Boston landmark going up in flames. The Hook Lobster Co. has been a local institution for over 80 years. It sat on a pier on the corner of Summer and Atlantic Ave.
A very visable location to locals and tourists alike.
It's a shame but I doubt the city will let them rebuild on the same location, time will tell. Chow Jim

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    I recall that they own it, but with the greenway going up, it is hard to imagine that it will be easy for them to rebuild.

    Hook the Crook?! Sounds a little suspicious to me. Even though the building was delapidated, it was, after all, built on WATER. And inside were lobsters IN WATER. I doubt the City will allow them to rebuild. After all, it was a rat-infested area.

    I'm from Boston & it was truly one of those places that gave Boston a bit of charm & reminded people of Bostons fishing history.
    It will be missed.

    From the sounds of it the community and mayor all support them and hope for them to rebuild.

    60,000 lbs of lobster destroyed in the fire, am I the only one that thought about getting some melted butter..?

    And on the following day another fire in the wholesale meat market area.
    A Lamb and Veal distributor went up in flames.
    Surf and Turf anyone? Chow Jim

    Apparently they are attempting to rebuild on that location.
    They would like to add a full service restaraunt according to my inside sources. Chow Jim

    Instant roadfood credibility.

    I wonder how the folks at the Barking Crab feel about that.
