Son of a Gun - Perceptor's Photo Report

after the success of Animal, Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo opened Son of a Gun on 3rd Street shop/eatery stretch by Beverly Center... it has a very cool nautica/new england vibe to it... the looong 20 seat communal table is the center piece of the restaurant... communal table definitely encourages alot of conversation and sharing between complete strangers...

food wise... the highlights were the lobster roll, fish dip and shrimp toast... the dessert hoboken special which is chocolate ice cream with pineapple fanta was definitely an interesting combo... im not copying that at home anytime soon but definitely interesting borderline interestingly odd :-)

Here is my photo report:

  1. Great photos. The only thing you did not show is the feel of the place when it's full of folks. Good vibe. Note that menu items and ingredients sometimes change.
