Sarma is the newest venture from the team behind Oleana & Sofra. Chef Ana Sortun joins Sarma Chef/Owners Cassie Piuma, and Matt Piuma in this latest collaboration. <br /><br />Sarma is a fun and funky neighborhood restaurant in the style of a Turkish Meyhane ("wine-house"). It serves casual and carefully constructed small plates (Meze), alongside a bustling craft-cocktail program. The wine list is small, and impactful, featuring only natural wines intended to compliment Chef Cassie's flavorful cuisine. Music, communal dining options, and colors abound at this new neighborhood gem! <br />

"We have eaten at Sarma before and enjoyed it. This visit, the food was way too salty. We also find tapas to be too expensive, and one leaves feeling hungry. It would be nice if there were entrees in addition to the tapas."

Bistro du Midi is an authentic Provencal Bistro focusing on the cuisine from Menton to Marseille. We offer an extensive wine list, spectacular southern French food in a relaxed atmosphere.

"Bistro du Midi was excellent. The setting is lovely, especially if you have a few of the Common. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The only minor criticism was the bread- it was very soft and somewhat soggy. We prefer a crusty French bread. We will be back!"

Sister restaurant to the popular New York and London locations, Bar Boulud, Boston at Mandarin Oriental, Boston is a French-inspired bistro and wine bar located in the heart of Back Bay on Boylston Street. Chef Daniel Boulud and Chef de Cuisine Aaron Chambers offer locally inspired seasonal dishes, traditional French bistro fare and an impressive selection of famed house-made terrines and pâtés by Parisian Charcutier, Gilles Verot. Additionally the menu features a handful of signature sausages and burgers, adding an American touch to this French inflected bistro and wine bar. An impressive wine cellar spotlights wines from Burgundy and the Rhóne Valley , including many fine selections by the glass. The interiors are inspired by a contemporary take on the craft of winemaking to create a comfortable and welcoming surrounding for a unique and intimate experience. Bar Boulud serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, all-day dining is also available at the bar. Walk-ins are encouraged.

"I was disappointed. Noise: Unbearably noisy. Decor: too "cute". Service: it took a very long time to be served our entrees. Prices: overpriced. $17.00 for a cocktail is ludicrous. Food: fair. The Sole Meuniere was salty. Terrines and pate had little flavor. Ham was no better than what I could purchase at any supermarket deli counter. The veal entree was very good. Waiter said entrees came with side dishes. Fish had small pieces of cauliflower that were more of a garnish than a side dish I discussed my impressions with the waiter, and he said it really is a typical bar as opposed to fine dining. Maybe a wine bar, but with 3 beers on tap and a minimal specialty cocktail list, hardly a typical bar. I would not go back."
