Move over Coppa there is a new restaurant ready to open in Boston's trendy South End. If rumors are to be believed, very soon The Gallows will be opening in the space previously occupied by Sage. Renovations at The Gallows are nearing completion and none to soon if you ask me, because since Pho Republique's departure that block has sorely lacked a neighborhood restaurant.
As was first reported in February by Grub Street, the menu is moderately priced with most entrees less than $20. The menu is described as "contemporary New England fare" and will include items like stuffed burgers and fish and chips, made with a choice of stout or light beer batter, and served with handmade chips and malt vinegar aioli. Sounds delicious to me. I can imagine hanging in the front bar which has dramatic views of the Cathedral and can offer interesting people watching.
