Several ex-pat New Englanders were together recently and remembering all kinds of things from the Impossible Dream year forward. It was the predictable litany of things such as favorite HoJo's, Friendly's etc. and the night was proof posiive that the world has just gone-to-hell since those days. We got off onto the subject of Hugo's in Cohasset...the question is: when did Hugo's vanish? And , as a follow-up, what is there now? At one time, Hugo's was as iconic as Hilltop Steakhouse...this is no judgement on food quality, just a statement of fact.
While restaurant opprtunities in New England have come a long way since the 1950's & 60's et seq., there was a charm to those old stand-bys that the newer places just do not have (itseems to me). Anyhelp on this research issue is greatly appreciated.
