They will feature "Ye Olde" Luncheon Specials $1.85. likely in 1704. Before it be- came a restaurant, Hopestill Capen's dress goods busi- ness occupied the property. In 1771 printer Isaiah Thomas published his news- paper, The Massachusetts Spy, from the second floor. "With such a long and illustrious history, the Union Oyster House has had its share of famous people in history as diners including the Kennedy clan and Daniel Webster. "Perhaps most surprising, in 1796 Louis Philippe, King of France from 1830 to 1848, lived in exile on the second floor. He earned his living by teaching French to young ladies. America's first wait- ress, Rose Carey, worked there starting in the early 1920s. Her picture is on the wall on the stairway up to the second floor. "The food is traditional New England fare such as seafoods oysters, clams, and lobsters, as well as poultry, baked beans, steak and chops. The toothpick was said to have been popular- ized in America starting at the Oyster House." .......
