Insider Guide

Gildas Dousset

Avid foodie and socialite of the Boston scene, Gildas connects guests with what’s new/next in the city.

After traveling the world, Gildas found Boston to have a cosmopolitan and sophisticated vibe which he's thrilled to share with his guests. The city’s dining scene has exploded over the past few years, and this foodie never ceases to be impressed. Get ready to expect the unexpected.


There is nothing like a crispy French baguette and warm butter croissants from the South End Buttery. This is my first stop before inviting friends over for a homemade brunch. Too tired to cook? They have a Market adjoining the café with platters full of salads, sesame crusted roasted salmon, glazed meatloaf, lemon and rosemary grilled chicken breasts, grilled seasonal vegetables, and more.

Sometimes, I like to give my wallet a break and head over to Penang in Chinatown. Offering delicious Malaysian-Thai dishes, the low-key eatery has the best Shrimp Sambal, Masak Lemak and Dry Coconut Milk Crabs.
