Set in the same spot of now-shuttered foodie haunts Excelsior and Biba, Bistro du Midi lives up to its predecessors. Split over two floors, Bistro du Midi boasts an impressive wine tower in a space brightened with touches of sleek blondes and beiges. Reclaimed weathered beams add a warm note to the spacious dining room. The Provencal cuisine of executive chef Robert Sisca (previously the executive sous chef at Michelin-starred Le Bernadin in New York City) dominates--bouillabaisse, plats au fours (a classic roasted chicken, cooked for two)--with hints of New England in a Vermont goat cheese salad with perfectly tangy beets or oysters dressed in an apple and fennel mignonette.
Provencal bistro dishes French comfort food on Public Garden.
This splendid French Provencal bistro glides into the space previously housed by Excelsior. Helmed by Chef Robert Sisca (former executive sous chef at NYC's Le Bernardin) the casual-yet-luxe restaurant boasts an extensive wine list and weekend brunch.
