Around this time last year, restaurateur Dean Poll swooped in and saved Gallagher's Steakhouse from the clutches of death. The 86-year-old restaurant closed for a multi-million dollar revamp in July, and now Poll is getting ready to open his new version of the steakhouse on February 10. This time around, it's called Gallaghers, no apostrophe.
The photos on the wall are from the old Gallagher's, but the dining room is completely new. The space now has an open kitchen, a raw bar, oak floorboards, and red leather booths. The wood and glass in the meat locker were replaced, and the horseshoe-shaped bar still looks like it did before. The menu has many of the old favorites plus some new, very 2014 dishes like hamachi crudo with yuzu, and veal carpaccio with pickled vegetables. Check it out:
Peter Niemitz, of Boston's Niemitz Design Group, was in charge of the revamp.
