The late, great Uglesich’s. The only restaurant I know of where the owner consistently told you not to come. Seriously: if you called to find out how long the line was (it often stretched way down the block to the left of this photo), Anthony Uglesich would answer and say “You don’t want to come. It’s way too crowded today”. They only had about 10 tables inside and the seafood was as good as it gets.
Counts as vintage since it closed just before the storm. NPR story on the closing here.
