Eat counter-side and enjoy a hearty dish.  Inspired by her early
start as a server at Brigham’s on West Broadway, Barbara Lynch

Italian dishes like potato gnocchi with mushroom argue, peas and
cream. The food is fresh and delicious.  The atmosphere hip and lively.https://caughtinsouthie.com/restaurants-bar/sportello
