About the restaurant
Owner Brian Piccini and Chef/Owner Christopher Coombs are proud of their award winning Restaurant & Bar, Deuxave in the Back Bay. The inspiration behind the restaurant’s American Nouveau Cuisine is seasonality, with a focus on working with the finest farms and purveyors, sourcing out the freshest, local ingredients and amplifying their magnificence. The cuisine is strongly rooted in the nouvelle techniques of contemporary French cuisine, married with the splendor of American ingredients in a refined, but casual setting. Deuxave’s (pronounced doo-ave) name plays homage to its location at the corners of Commonwealth Ave and Massachusetts Ave.

We arrived early for our dinner reservation and we were seated right away. The food is delicious. The waitstaff is wonderful. Location is perfect, a quick walk to Symphony Hall. The only thing I would say is they need more cocktail options.

About the restaurant
Bistro du Midi's cuisine features French Cuisine inspired by Coastal New England influences. Our wine list represents the true soul of a bistro wine list. In a classic French bistro, wine is very much a part of every meal. As such, we offer a variety of experiences and wines at a tremendous value in a range of prices. Our elegant yet relaxed environment overlooks Boston's beautiful Public Garden with a spectacular view. A street level Bistro features floor-to-ceiling windows, and in the spring and summer our patio provides some of the most optimal al fresco dining in the city.

I went to dinner with a friend. We split the salmon tartare which was excellent and the server saw we were running low on crostinis and brought us extra. For our mains, my guest had the steak frites which she enjoyed and I had the roasted chicken. The chicken skin was crispy and delicious and there wasn’t a single piece of the meat I had trouble chewing or needed to spit out. The potatoes were smooth and decadent. We split the crème brûlée for dessert which was tasty! We also had the spicy margarita and espresso martini (decaf for me - yay, I never find it). All around, the food was wonderful. We sat in the greenhouse which was super cute and had nice ambience.

Small tables great for cozy date night, large patio/cafe for awesome outdoor dining. Unfortunately there’s construction across the street so not the best views, but it really wasn’t too much of a bother…can’t wait to see the vibes when that’s done! The interior is fabulous. Pleasant and knowledgable staff, our server made great recommendations. Delicious fresh warm bread basket and whipped butter to start. Textbook PERFECT french fries. PERFECT whiskey sour. Burrata salad was so nice and fresh on a hot summer evening. First time dining, will be back!
