Son of a Gun

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Walking into Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook’s sophomoric restaurant— the first being the meat-intensive Animal—feels like walking into a sea captain’s quarters—Captain Ahab’s, maybe, if he was more self-aware. Various nautical-themed knick-knacks frame the walls—what sea quarters wouldn't be complete without a giant mounted fish—but a dive Son of a Gun is not. Their take on the lobster roll, for instance, takes beautiful chunks of lobster draped in lemon aioli and plops them on a plump, albeit tiny, brioche bun. At $7, it's worth the $3.50 per bite. Other hits: the shrimp toast with Srircha mayo and, oddly enough for a seafood restaurant, the fried chicken sandwich, piled with spicy pickles and crunchy slaw. Like most crew quarters, this space is small. Get there early to nab a seat at the communal table or the bar; otherwise, limited reservations are available.
