Restaurant review: the Gallows

Last night I had dinner at the Gallows, in Boston’s South End neighborhood (map).  It’s a fun, small, local place, with excellent drinks.

The food was good too.  We had some of the poutine, their specialty, as well as roasted beets, shrimp, and fried oysters with runny egg on brioche, which was delicious.

But the drinks were really good.  My favorite, continuing a recent theme for me, was a cocktail based on Scotch Bonnet-infused vodka, which had a really nice kick, but stayed well-balanced.

Service was good, the ambiance nice, and there’s plenty of free parking on the street, at least around dinner time.

All in all, a fun local place.
