Coinciding with our new exhibit, Dining In Dedham, author James C. O’Connell will explore the history of restaurants in Boston with his lecture, Dining Out in Boston: A Culinary History. Based on his book of the same title, the lecture takes a visual journey to some of Boston’s great hotel dining rooms, oyster houses, and ice cream parlors. Over the years, Boston has been one of America’s leading laboratories of urban culture, including restaurants, and Boston history provides valuable insights into American food ways.
Admission: free for DHS members; $5.00 for non-members. Copies of O’Connell’s book will be available for purchase at the lecture. Cash or checks only.
