    The future of a landmark seafood market and cafe that has been in business for more than 100 years appears to be very much in question.

    According to a Twitter post from restaurant critic and food/drinks writer MC Slim JB, Morse Fish Company in Boston's South End is up for lease, with a note on Facebook telling us that a "For Lease" sign is indeed in the window of the Washington Street business. It is not yet known how much longer the market will remain open--or if someone might try to keep it in business--so keep checking back for updates.

    Morse Fish Company first opened in 1903, according to Zagat, with the market offering such items as haddock, shrimp, scallops, clams, oysters, salmon, crab, lobster, calamari, swordfish, mussels, tilapia, and more.

    The address for Morse Fish Company is 1401 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02118

    February 22: According to a note sent by Patrick Maguire of Maguire Promotions & Hospitality Consulting, it appears that Morse will probably be open for a couple more months, based on someone who he talked to there.
