We went there after Itzhak Perlman, the world famous violinist at the symphony. I was with Steve's mother, Joyce and four of her friends.
I had the mussels ($25) and an order of fries ($7), I do love my moules frites. The mussels were outstanding. They came in the large egg shaped Strab cast iron serving vessel, I have seen before. The mussels were unbelievably plump and tender and the white wine, garlic, onion, and fennel broth was delicious although a tad salty.
I was surprised they didn't give me any bread for dipping, although I guess could have used the baguette slices from the breadbasket. My fries were crispy and well-seasoned. My dessert was a macaron and chocolate bonbon assortment ($7). The pumpkin - caramel macaron was delicious.
Our server was attractive with a lovely French accent. The service was attentive as you would like.
The Boston Globe just reviewed the restaurant five days prior to our meal and Debra First did not enjoy her experience there. I guess she should've had the mussels and the macarons.
