Boston, have you been yet??
Located across from the Boston Public Garden and next to the Four Seasons Hotel, this establishment peeks out unassumingly onto Boylston St. and invites passers-by and regulars alike onto its open-air patio, bar, and upstairs dining room. Boasting southern French cuisine, this bistro has both a bar menu as well as a full menu and also has a lively dessert spread.
We stopped in twice in the span of a week recently and had to try the house made sorbet and gelato, which come in a variety of unique flavors, such as pear, apricot, basil, and buttermilk and are perfect for a evening on the patio while sipping espresso or catching up with friends in the mid-afternoon.
Top: Gratin Dauphinois
Very tasty, thinly sliced potatoes with herbs and cream. Not unlike what I’ve tasted in the south of France myself.
Bottom: Endive and bibb salad, white peach, hazelnuts, bleu d’Auvergne
Ice cream : basil and vanilla
Very enjoyable flavors and smooth texture – highly recommend.
Sipping espresso has grown on me – it’s remarkable how such a small cup can hold so many sips (or how one can learn to sip and not gulp 🙂 )
