Park Provisions

Earl of Sandwich rules the Common's former Pink Palace


First, a public restroom. Now, a restaurant?

It's not a November Fools joke.

It's Earl of Sandwich, now open at the former bathroom building in Boston Common, near Tremont and Boylston Street.

Replacing the stall shame and paper towel fights that defined the Pink Palace, Earl's bringing all-new edible memories, and you'll want to wait in these lines even more than the old ones.

From their signature Original 1762 (hot roast beef, sharp cheddar, creamy horseradish sauce) to well-traveled options like the Hawaiian BBQ (with ham and chicken piled high with pineapple and island-spiced barbecue sauce), this is the best thing to hit a bathroom since hands-free soap dispensers.

And because you no longer have to worry about villains like the Pee-Pee Monster, you also may want to swing through the Common on the way to work in the morning, as they offer a breakfast menu plus salads and wraps to go.

Oh, and if you're curious, there's no such thing as November Fools.
