The Moules a la Provencal appear a few times on the lunch and dinner menus with good reason. The mussels are steamed with tomatoes, white wine, garlic, herbs and crouton. The sauce is more like a broth which you’ll want to dip whatever is edible on the table. Of course the cassoulet is a must amid baked beans with meltingly braised bacon and a chuck of fresh pork, a full leg of confit duck, and a fine lean lamb sausage. And don’t forget to not hold back on the dessert. There is a Crème Brulee with your name on it.
The lunch menu is a bit more affordable than dinner but neither skimps on taste. You can expect to spend from $11-$30 but the wonderful service even in this packed restaurant will make you forget you are in Boston.
