Bistro du Midi

Modern French

  • 85

Expect refined French dishes presented in a casually elegant space at Bistro du Midi, a Back Bay gem with a spacious dining room in soft neutral tones and views of the Public Gardens. The menu highlights France's Midi region with dishes like seared duck breast with gnocchi, Spanish octopus served atop confit fennel and fingerling potatoes, or fluke crudo with bottarga consommé, as well as the chef’s nightly tasting menu. The bar pours wines hailing from France, Italy, and the US, alongside house cocktails like the Marius (gin, maraschino, absinthe, lime, tonic).
