Gaslight in Boston's South End Is Closing

A French restaurant in the South End of Boston is shutting down.

According to a couple of sources, Gaslight Brasserie du Coin on Harrison Avenue in the SoWa area is closing its doors, with one source indicating that its last day will be Sunday, November 22 after brunch service. A Facebook post from the dining spot hints that new restaurants could be on the way from the group behind the spot, saying that "The Aquitaine Group is moving off of Harrison Avenue and we are looking forward to new endeavors in 2021. We are bullish on Boston and the restaurant community that serves our city just as we have, for over 25 years and running at Aquitaine Boston, Aquitaine Chestnut Hill and Metropolis Cafe."

Gaslight is one of two restaurants from the The Aquitaine Group that has resided on Harrison Avenue, with Cinquecento closing earlier this year after being hit by a flood from a water main break.

The address for Gaslight is 560 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA, 02118.
