Best of Boston

2013 Best South End Restaurant

The Gallows

Come for the ever-evolving cocktail menu (strong whiskey cocktails in the winter, bright gin drinks in the summer). Stay for the classic griddled burgers and the out-of-control poutine. What to Order: The poached lobster salad on brioche; any of the burgers.
