About The Aquitaine Group:

The Aquitaine Group consists of partners Seth Woods, Matt Burns, and Jeffrey Gates, three individuals with distinctly different personal and professional backgrounds, making these destination restaurants as well as the go-to spots in their respective neighborhoods. Restaurants included in the current portfolio are: Metropolis Café, Aquitaine (Boston, Chestnut Hill, and Dedham), Cinquecento, Gaslight Brasserie, Green Light Café, La Motta’s Italian Specialties and Gaslight Lynnfield.

Founder/CEO Seth Woods founded what is now the Aquitaine Group with the opening of Metropolis Cafe in 1995, where he received praise from local and national media. In 1998, Woods opened Aquitaine Bar a Vin Bistrot on Tremont Street in Boston’s South End paving the way for what is now known as “restaurant row.” Woods has received accolades for his work within the restaurant community through Boston Business Journal, The New York Times and Food & Wine, but what is the true accomplishment is his commitment to each project’s success, and sustainability in an ever changing city.

Matthew Burns, a native of Boston, met Seth Woods at Armani Café on Boston’s Newbury Street where Burns was general manager and Woods was the acting chef. In 2000, Burns teamed up with Woods to open a second Aquitaine location in Chestnut Hill. According to Burns “a seamless combination of warm, skilled service, delicious food all in a comfortable yet interesting ambiance is what makes a great and successful restaurant.”

Jeffrey Gates joined the Aquitaine Group a few years later and in 2003, Gates was instrumental in opening Union Bar and Grille and later Gaslight Brasserie du coin, both in the South End. Recognized for his consummate professionalism, extensive wine knowledge, methodical and meticulous approach to business, Gates brings a wealth of experience and an unprecedented understanding of the Boston restaurant scene to the Aquitaine Group.

The Aquitaine Group’s restaurants are widely recognized as among the very best in the city of Boston’s growing and respected restaurant scene. They have garnered awards and accolades from local and national publications.
