Gaslight, South End

It was nearly 11pm when the Gillian Welch show ended (I liked it more than I expect to) and I was hungry. I was not going to submit to Steve’s suggestion that we go to John Harvard’s – once a week is more than enough. Luckily he acquiesced to Gaslight, a brasserie that serves till 1:30am.
The décor is classic French, complete with white subway tile and zinc bar; I thought our banquette was cozy. I had a French onion soup and he had the steak frites. My soup had deep beefy flavor, albeit a little greasy from the raft of cheese on top. The steak was from Brandt and was a bavette cut (French for flank steak) and it had an excellent sear and good meaty flavor. The fries were also crisp and delicious.
The prices aim for affordable; most entrees are under $20. The steak frites came in at $19.75. The meal started with a hot, crusty baguette, so you know that can’t be a bad thing. The service was also French inspired, which is to say that it was slow and they ignored us. But that’s ok, it’s part of the authentic experience, right?
Boston is a city that lacks in late night dining choices, so Gaslight is a good one to have in the back of your mind.
