Gaslight, Brasserie du Coin is a classic neighborhood Parisian brasserie. Located in Boston’s historic South End we find Gaslight’s decor is warm and inviting. Our Ambassadors lead a tasting at its hand crafted Parisian zinc bar surrounded by reclaimed wood floors, mosaic tiles, beamed wood ceilings, nicotine stained walls and antique mirror. What a fun way to kick off the tour!

Cinquecento is a new Romanesque incarnation of the old Rocca space on Harrison Avenue. This much-anticipated 250-seat restaurant with a 100 bottle wine list features provincial roman cuisine from Chef Chris Robins (Gaslight Alum). With exposed red brick, reclaimed wood tables, an Italian onyx marble bar, and endless bottles of Campari, the space has a subtle Italian feel and an upscale coziness. Saluti! 

The tour concludes with Masa, which offers an award winning menu of “new Southwest” cuisine, pairing flavors and cooking styles of the Southwestern kitchen with local New England ingredients. You will taste two savory red wines paired with yucca fries, steak tostada, queso fundido empandas, and grilled chorizo. You may even book reservations for dinner after the tour! 

The tour covers no more than 0.6 miles. Walking shoes are suggested, but not required.

The tour is wheelchair accessible.
