From oyster houses to ice cream parlors, Boston has long been one of the country’s most influential restaurant cities. In this talk, Jim O’Connell, author of Dining Out in Boston: A Culinary History, will discuss the histories of some of Boston’s most notable eateries: Union Oyster House, the recently shuttered Durgin Park, Parker House, Marliave, the erstwhile Locke Ober Café, and more. O’Connell, a planner for the Boston Regional Office of the National Park Service, holds a Ph.D. in Urban History from the University of Chicago and teaches in the City Planning Program at Boston University. Meet at King’s Chapel Parish House, 64 Beacon Street, at 5:30 p.m. for hors d’oeuvres; program begins at 6 p.m. BHV/BHS members: Free. Guests: $20.
