Venus Seafood in Boston

I understand that Venus was forced to close when a bridge extending off I-93 was built right through it. It's probably a long shot, but do you have any idea if they relocated or re-opened under a different name?

I sent you a long (brilliant!) reply earlier this week, but it was early in my navigation of the web site and apparently it didn't post. So sorry!
No, I never heard of Venus and unfortunately have no information on whether it might have relocated. I searched in vain for a real chowder house or clam shack in the Boston area, and came up empty handed - though I certainly could have missed something good. I heard that the No Name used to be great, but had slipped in recent years, so I didn't visit it. So many great places have gone the way of the Venus - doomed by developers, either governmental or capitalistic - and its especially likely to happen, of course, in an urban area. That's one reason I wrote this book - to champion the cause of the little guys who hang on in spite of those kinds of obstacles!

Later Biba's dining rooms. Durgen Park (beans and Indian Pudding) for tourists.
Are they still serving I wonder?
