A storied restaurant will close down after a lengthy history operating in various locations north of Boston. Bishop’s Legacy Restaurant will say its final farewells this week before closing for good on December 24, according to Boston Restaurant Talk.
Bishop’s Legacy opened in Lowell in March of 2015 after a 14-year absence from the restaurant world, as previously reported. The original spot, Bishop’s, opened in Lawrence in 1949, while another location in the Merrimack Valley operated from 1968 to 2001, as the Lowell Sun noted. Last week, the 143 Merrimack St. restaurant shared the news of the impending closure on Facebook, letting patrons know that this is the final week of service.
The post read, in part:
All of us at Bishop’s Legacy Restaurant would like to thank our many guests as well as the City of Lowell for their support over the past two years. We opened in Lowell offering a casual atmosphere and affordable menu, utilizing our family’s original recipes and famous formula for fresh French fried potatoes.
It then went on to indicate that family dynamics had changed, and the restaurant would close, effective December 24. Bishop’s Legacy served Lebanese cuisine, including items like tabouli, falafel, and baba ganoush, among assorted soups, salads, and both seafood and meat entrees.
