I've heard that Gallia will be closing its doors soon(maybe it already has). Word is that the owner had a "Closing Party" for regulars recently.
Unfortunately, this place was a little out of the way for many (on Washington Street). The food was generally always good, outdoor seating in nice weather, good sized bar, but what the area really needs is something more casual to appeal to the many who live in the immediate area. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the South End needs more mid-priced choices. Hopefully someone will take over the location and turn it into something my neighbors and I can frequent without worrying about the dent in our wallets.
