This South End restaurant gets its name from the fact that it stands on the site where Boston used to hang people in the 18th century. Pretty unpleasant. What’s less unpleasant, though, is the place itself: a gastropub with filling food and enough booze to make you start talking to the ghosts who probably hang out in the bathroom. We love the falafel burger, but they also have three different types of poutine, so there’s that.

Trillium is a brewery in the Seaport. The line out the door will be full of people coming for the beer, but the food is actually really good, too.
