Durgin-Park, the Faneuil Hall landmark known for Yankee pot roast and salty servers, died on Jan. 12. It was 192 years old, a holdover from a bygone era with few survivors. In its earliest iteration, the space catered to 18th-century sailors and Quincy Market meat-cutters. Over time, it became a way station for tourists, celebrities, and local pilgrims seeking an unvarnished taste of old Boston: reasonably priced portions of New England classics served with attitude.The restaurant, family-run for years, was purchased in 2007 by New York City's Ark Restaurants. CEO Michael Weinstein attributed the closure to loss of customer traffic.
This is not the first legendary Boston restaurant to close, of course. Locke-Ober is gone. L'Espalier, too. But there is a sense that this hits harder, because Durgin-Park was never a restaurant for the elite. It was a hangout with a working-class f... Nov 28, 2018

Grind roots in coffee mill and brew as coffee using about three-fourths as much as you would with regular coffee.

Kahului Florist is moving
The mall has undergone a change in the mix of its stores, most recently announcing the opening of Da Shrimp Hale next to Baskin Robbins.
Leaving the mall has brought some sadness to the staff. Initially, the business was in the same row of shops as Tasaka and The Pet Shop. When The Pet Shop wanted to expand 10 years ago, Kahului Florist moved to its current site, still in the vicinity of Tasaka, and next to Subway.
“We’re going to miss Tasaka. We are going to miss Subway. They’ve been our neighbors for a long time,” Nishimura said, adding that the businesses looked out for each another.
Still, “change is bound to happen,” she said.
Doris Nishimura, Natalie Nishimura’s mother, brought family into the floral business, and has seen lots of changes through the years.
The Nishimura family owned a meat market at the Kahului Shopping Center and the florist was in the back. It was owned by two sisters with the last names Fujimoto and Tamura, the Nishimuras said. Doris Nishimura was invited to join the business when Fujimoto retired in the early 1960s.
Doris Nishimura later took over the entire business when the other sister retired. The Nishimura family has held an ownership interest in Kahului Florist for 54 years.
Prior to joining Kahului Florist, Doris Nishimura had no experience in the flower business.
“She learned on the job. She did wonderful,” said Natalie Nishimura.
The business has changed over the decades. Funeral wreaths used to be made from scratch in the days before styrofoam circles. Lumber was cut by Doris’ husband, Harold, who also gathered banana leaves with son Mel to wrap the wreaths. The two men have since passed.
There weren’t a lot of vases, so cans were cut and wrapped in foil to hold flowers, Doris Nishimura remembers.
While the women say they love their jobs, they admit it is hard work.
“She never went to a Mother’s Day lunch,” Natalie Nishimura said of her mother.
Family members told Doris Nishimura’s four granddaughters to get a college education and not work at the florist, so they could spend time with their families. Two of her granddaughters, who still live on Maui, and their husbands take vacations from their day jobs to help the family during busy times, such as Valentine’s and Mother’s days and Christmas.
“That’s why we can survive, we have the family,” said Natalie Nishimura.
Natalie Nishimura co-owns the business with her sister, Kathy Tokumoto, and Kathy’s husband, Wayne, who serves as manager.
The new store hours hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be closed on Sundays.
The phone number will remain the same, 877-3951.
