The Aquitaine Group's latest expansion will soon be ready for guests: Gaslight opens at MarketStreet in Lynnfield on January 4, the group announced today. It is the sister of the group's Gaslight Brasserie in Boston's South End, and it joins The Aquitaine Group's other restaurants, Cinquecento, Aquitaine, Metropolis Cafe, and La Motta's.
The new restaurant will seat 300 people and serve as an American counterpart to its French-style sibling, featuring classic dishes like tuna au poivre and rotisserie chicken, plus charcuterie, salads, and desserts. There will also be a raw bar, plus an extensive wine list, craft cocktails, and beer. Gaslight will have separate lunch and brunch menus, a children's menu, and more.
Steve Morlino (Sorellina, Mistral, Union Bar & Grille) will serve as chef de cuisine at Gaslight, with Eric Hogan at the helm of the restaurant. Hogan is the former general manager of Gaslight in Boston.
Gaslight Lynnfield will have a 33-seat bar, a private space, and an open dining room with additional outdoor patio space in season, complete with a fire pit for summer marshmallow roasts.
Gaslight will be open just for dinner for its first few weeks, but full hours will eventually be Monday through Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Thursday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. with the bar open until midnight, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. with the bar open until 11 p.m.
