Today, Hamersley’s Bistro overlord Gordon Hamersley Tweets that he hasn’t been to the North End since … 1976. Whoa. We know it can get kind of crowded and touristy, and parking can be a hassle, and sometimes the waiters have fake accents, but … 35 years? Still, one lucky restaurant lured him from his South End lair.

Hamersley tucked into lunch at Neptune Oyster, which he declared “fantastic.” Yep, Neptune is one of our favorites, too. If you’re going to cross town to dine after three decades, food better be good. [Twitter/Ghamersley]
