A family-run restaurant with locations in Boston and Vermont has closed one of its local restaurants for good: The owners of the Daily Catch (2 Northern Ave., Boston) announced this week that the Seaport restaurant would permanently cease operations after 16 years in business at that location.
Maria and Paul Freddura shared a somber message on social media thanking patrons for their business.
“It is with sad and few regrets that our Two Northern Ave location of The Daily Catch operating for sixteen years had closed its doors,” a post read. “The Freddura family would like to extend our sincere thanks to all our patrons from near and far. To all the memories, birthdays, weddings and special moments we all shared there.”
The Daily Catch has two remaining Massachusetts locations in Boston’s North End on Hanover Street and in Brookline on Harvard Street. There is also a location in Woodstock, Vermont.
Now that the Seaport restaurant has closed, the Fredduras plan to search for a new location in the Seaport District or elsewhere, according to their Instagram post. Their seven sons — Maximilian, Basil, Theo, Sage, Sebastian, Louis, and Dominic — also play roles in the family business, which dates back to 1973.
Much change has come to the Seaport District in recent years. With several new mixed-use developments sprouting up on each block, the neighborhood has already seen waves of openings and closures — Yo! Sushi closed down recently after two years in business, while new operations like Shake Shack, Tuscan Kitchen, Kings, and Fuku have moved into the neighborhood, with more on the way, including a member of the Barcelona family, Bartaco.
