Bistro du Midi, Boston : Traditional but great

While wandering around Boston, my wife and I decided to have lunch at a restaurant before heading home.

Being close to the commons, we decided to stop off at Bistro du Midi, located near the Four Seasons Hotel.

The concept

The concept is simple, with French and Mediterranean-inspired dishes.

The setting

The setting is quite plush, and the restaurant is of a good size, with one room on the first floor and another upstairs.

A slightly old-fashioned charm.

The menu

The menu is quite extensive, including for lunch. At the time of our visit, a specific menu for Restaurant Week was available, but we’ll stick to the regular menu.

The meal and the dishes

To accompany our meal, I’ll order a glass of burgundy.

My wife ordered the foie gras as a starter, which despite its very (too) creative appearance, was really excellent.


For the main course, I ordered the mussels, which were excellent, and my wife the flank steak, which was a little undercooked for her taste.


The service

The service was excellent and attentive.

The atmosphere

The atmosphere was a little quiet when we arrived, but warmed up slowly as the service progressed.

Bottom line

A wonderful experience that I hope we’ll have the pleasure of repeating in the future.
