Arbitrary Scale

Jesu Christo! Phantom gave Gaslight a 90.
Are you kidding me? the food's pretty good, but Gourmet Greatness? Hardly.
Gaslight opened up last summer, after much hype, but Phantom just got around to scoring it last month. I must have missed that show. Was it featured on the "Pre-game Marathon" or maybe one of the numerous "Comfort Food" shows??? anyone?

First off - Gaslight is owned by the Aquitaine Group. They're namesake, and flagship restaurant, only got an 81 from Phantom! Seth Woods opened up Gaslight as Aquitaine's lil' sister. A cheaper everyman's version of Aquitaine. Unfortunately, the everyman has turned into the every-gay-man-in-the-south-end. Hardly a "corner restaurant." Gaslight is hardly a Brasserie. As Aquitaine is hardly a Bistrot. But they do decent impressions of France.

Let's see... perhaps the best "bistrot" dining in greater Boston: Craigie Street Bistrot. What did phantom give it? Eighty-effin'-four!
are you kidding me? Mezze-mezze?
Yeah - it's no Kitty O'Shea's (coming in just above Craigie Street at 85). I mean, come on. A generic faux-Irish pub in Faneuil Hall has a James Beard award-winning chef beat any day.

But they all hope to some day achieve the level of the esteemed Kowloon.
