Boston's No Name to close after more than a century....

A famous Boston seafood restaurant with No Name is to close after more than a century in business it has been announced this week.

The restaurant was founded in 1917 by Nick Contos to feed fishermen at the end of the workday and didn't see the need of giving it a name,  saying “If it works, leave it alone.”.

The restaurant was run by the Contos family until the end and was in many city guides as one of the best seafood places in Boston. 

The oddly named, No Name on South Boston’s Fish Pier confirmed the news on its Facebook page Monday, with the following message.
"To our many loyal customers, employees and our longtime community,
After over 100 years, we had to make the difficult decision to close the No Name Restaurant.
We want to thank our generations of customers for all the years of loyal patronage, and for helping make the No Name a landmark location.
To our employees, many of whom have been with us for decades, we cannot thank you enough -- we thank you for your tireless dedication and hard working service.
It has been an honor to be part of your celebrations and your everyday lives for so many years.
We will miss you all,
The No Name Family"

According to federal court documents, the restaurant was facing financial difficulties and on Monday it filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection.
