In the late 20th century, the city didn’t look exciting, it wasn’t lively, and nothing much was happening at night.Into this dreary atmosphere came Hamersley’s Bistro, a small, chic French restaurant that opened in 1987. Chef and co-owner Gordon Hamersley and his wife, Fiona, had to lure the dining public to the South End, where there were few eateries like theirs. Local residents didn’t generally eat out if it wasn’t a special occasion. “Boston was pretty buttoned-up,” says Gordon Hamersley, who ran the bistro for nearly 30 years.Bostonians went to restaurants the way they did everything else — … [Read more...] about How do Boston’s favorite restaurants survive for decades?
