Bruce's Reviews
 
Brasserie L'Oustau brings a new American interpretation of classic French foods served at brasseries throughout Provence, an area of southern France famous for sun-kissed produce and seafood harvested fresh from the Mediterranean. Bar Matisse, a Victorian-era bar located within the restaurant, offers a small-plate menu of unique lighter fare. <br /><br />Family-friendly with a relaxed and respectful ambiance, diners can enjoy lunch on weekdays, brunch Saturday and Sunday, and dinner every day we are open. <br /><br />Available menus include Children's, Vegetarian and Gluten-free. We offer a Prix Fixe option as well as dinner Plats du Jour.<br /><br />During warmer months, we offer dining service in our beautifully landscaped terrace. The bar-height fire pit, surrounded by a locally-quarried marble counter, provides a dynamic dining experience. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Boston's most exciting & comprehensive wine list cannot be found at a steakhouse or hotel; it is at Troquet, where cutting-edge cuisine & a killer view of the Boston Common act as accompaniments to an evening guaranteed to fulfill any wine connoisseur's fantasies. Please allow a minimum of two hours for dinner.

Da Vinci Ristorante is renowned and highly recognized in Boston's stylish restaurant scene, bringing wonderful flavor and ambiance to the South End/Back Bay area since 2007.<br /><br />The sophisticated interior is warm and welcoming and the staff extends that feeling to each and every patron. The recently redesigned and modernized space features a comfortable full service bar.<br /><br />Chef Peppino's menu reflects a blend of modern and classic Italian cuisine from his training in Europe's Italian restaurants. It features an array of beautifully presented Antipasti and Entrees, and the chef's homemade pastas are made fresh every day as is the bread and all desserts. <br /><br />Great emphasis is also placed on accommodating guests with dietary, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan restrictions to ensure that each and every guest has an unforgettable experience from start to finish.

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. <br />It’s a scientific fact that seafood is the healthiest protein, so it’s no wonder that Legal Sea Foods located nearby MIT and a whole catch of biotech office buildings in Kendall Square would be such a popular lure. Our restaurant, steps from the Marriott Hotel and convenient to Cambridgeside Galleria shopping and the Museum of Science, reels in residents and tourists alike. <br /><br />We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Bricco’s star has been rising steadily since restaurateur Frank DePasquale revamped the menu to feature modern interpretations of regional Italian dishes. <br><br> Bricco has garnished superlative reviews from food writers in Boston and around the country – Best Guaranteed Meal in the North End and Best Pasta in Boston just two of the most recent accolades. <br><br> The talented kitchen team creates “boutique” Italian food, so-called because it is unique, personal and created for a select and sophisticated diner. The food is complemented by an enoteca (wine bar) with an exceptional selection of all-Italian wines. <br><br> Bricco also offers a sophisticated late night scene. The chic and energetic bar serves up great one of a kind cocktails as well as brick oven pizza with gourmet toppings such as prosciutto and fresh mozzarella from Italy in addition with a full dinner menu. <br>Open 7 days a week 11:oopm – 2:00 a.m.

Nestled in the heart of Harvard Square is one of the warmest, most inviting French restaurants in the Greater Boston area. The restaurant prides itself on serving classic French Cuisine with an Alsatian influence. Sandrine's is an unpretentious Bistro with a national reputation for excellence. Shortly after the restaurant opened, Esquire magazine named it "one of the 25 best restaurants in the U.S.".
