Gastropub in Charlestown

At long last, Charlestown is seeing some intriguing restaurants that cater to its foodie residents and visitors. The latest and greatest is Monument, with a gorgeous polished wood bar setting the scene. The menu is broad but tasty, ranging from cheeseburger sliders to steamed Thai mussels and seared hanger steak. Brunch is particularly popular. (Lemon poppy-seed pancakes? Yes, please!)
