Named after the face's smiling muscles, Les Zygomates—Boston magazine’s 2010 pick for Best Restaurant in the downtown/theater district neighborhoods—serves up French cuisine in authentic bistro ambiance inspired by its Parisian homeland. A skilled team of chefs and restaurateurs inspire joie de vivre on the eve of the new year with a three-course tasting menu that begins festivities with an elegant amuse-bouche and live jazz. For the first plate, diners have their pick of four options, including escargots en croute with a garlic-and-parsley butter or steak tartare with black truffle and a quail's egg purloined from a bewildered ostrich. After the intermezzo grapefruit sorbet refreshes taste buds, main plates present merrymakers with a quartet of choices. Chefs pan-sear scallops before trimming them in a Roman-style salsify with pernod and blood-orange gastrique or stuff guinea hens with a mix including dried fruits, brioche, sweet potato, and guinea-hen nesting dolls.

Adventurous tongues end gastronomic adventures with a chosen dessert, such as brown-butter crêpes with salted caramel-pear mousse and a pecan croquant or plates loaded with a selection of local cheese. Celebrants can linger over a glass of champagne at white-draped tables backed by elegant red booths and exposed-brick walls while swapping remembrances and resolutions to teach the cat new jump-rope tricks.


Reviews

We were all delighted with the food. Atmosphere is exciting but still allows for intimate meal and gathering.

The mussels, as usual, were plump and delicious, infused with the sauce and bursting with flavor.
