South Street Diner
For a city as rich in history as Boston, we’re a bit thin on long-lived restaurants. And true to our Puritan roots, we’re not much of an all-night town, mostly rolling up our sidewalks before 2 am. These facts make SOUTH STREET DINER a rara avis: it dates to the 1940s and is open 24/7, serving classic greasy-spoon fare at appropriately modest prices. Mercifully, it recently staved off efforts by newly arrived neighbors to curb its hours. Thus it remains one of Boston’s tiny handful of dining destinations for graveyard-shift workers, the stumbling post-nightclub crowd, and hungry insomniacs.
