The No Name got its name just after opening, in 1917. Fisherman docking from shifts would wander to a nearby fish stand and ask the proprieter, Nick Contos, what his place was called. "No Name, come eat" he'd say. It stuck. Since then the Contos family has operated a landmark stop on Boston´s eating scene, offering a seafarer's atmosphere with fresh catches daily. A trip to Boston is incomplete without a visit to the No Name. Come eat!

Nick Contos

"He had no fancy airs about him, and only the most observant visitors knew that Nicholas J. Contos was the owner of the No Name Restaurant on the Fish Pier on the South Boston waterfont. His charitable efforts were like his physical presence and even his famed eatery's name: very understated. "No one who approached him for any kind of help was turned away," said the Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Clapsis, dean of the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brokline, after Nick's death. "He was the most extraordinary person I have ever met."
