A downtown Boston restaurant that resides in an iconic space has been joined by a hidden basement spot that offers a mix of art, culture, and dining.
According to a press release, the Gallery is now open below Yvonne's, a high-end "supper club" that took over the former Locke-Ober space on Winter Place in late 2015. The new space is accessed through Yvonne's Library Lounge by way of a hidden bookshelf door, with the downstairs space having rotating art exhibits and seven tables where diners can order from Yvonne's food and drinks menus.
The space in which the Gallery resides is the former Rebel Room, which had been used for private events and large groups; when Locke-Ober resided in the space, the downstairs room was actually called Yvonne's, a members-only club that inspired the name of the current restaurant.
Yvonne's (and the Gallery) can be found at 3 Winter Place in the Downtown Crossing section of Boston.
