Just before Thanksgiving, Jason Santos opened his second restaurant, Abby Lane, in the heart of Boston's Theatre District. This area has only just recently been seeing the opening of non-chain restaurants, which can sometimes make dinner and a show a bit more special. When Nick's family came to town to celebrate the holiday, we decided it would be fun to see what Santos' new place had to offer.
Even though it was right before the holiday, I was surprised to see how empty it was. We had reservations, but could have walked right in. The space is lofty with beamed ceilings and distinctive cage light fixtures. The atmosphere is warm but still light because of the wall of windows in the front. While we did not check it out, the upstairs has a nice bar and lounge area with brick walls and couches.
