Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe, an 87-year-old institution in the South End that has seen countless celebrities, regulars, and plates of turkey hash over the years, closes its doors after service tomorrow, June 28. The four sibling owners, all in their 70s, wanted to retire "on a high note," co-owner Arthur Manjourides told Boston Magazine.
Former employee George Aaron Cuddy wrote a book about the restaurant a couple years ago, Where Hash Rules, examining Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe's history, the family behind it, and what its existence has meant to decades of regulars. (Take a peek at the photos in the book here.) In recent years, the restaurant has won a James Beard award and been the subject of a presidential visit.
