It’s a historically-documented fact that no one had more fun than the American expats in 1920s Paris. You missed it, that sucks, and you won’t be going to 1920s Paris any time soon, but as a consolation you should check out Gaslight in the South End. It’s all there: the French food, the globe lighting, the white-tiled walls, and the silver bar. Grab some friends and split the shellfish platter. Or if your group is six or more, let the restaurant customize a menu for your table. This isn’t the 1920s, but you also don’t have to worry about Spanish flu, so you’ve got that going for you.
Gaslight is permanently closed.
