Peter Christian’s interior removed

Peter Christian’s (in the New York Times; in New London) was a Hanover tavern that occupied a basement at 35 South Main Street lined with dark wood, including beams salvaged from the oldest house in Hanover, the 1770 Storrs’ Tavern (D.K.E.). During the mid-1990s, Old Pete’s replaced it, then another tavern, then The Wrap. The Wrap has become a burrito place called Boloco, for “Boston Local Company.” (One customer was overheard describing a burrito to her deprived child as “like a wrap, but warm.”) When the wrap or the burrito place moved in, all of the old, dark interior was ripped out and presumably sold off. A Boloco clerk said that someone stole the bar one night.
