Petit Robert Bistro
Petit Robert Bistro channels the relaxed ambiance of an authentic French bistro where common folk can gather for comforting, affordable fare. Blackboards bearing daily specials preside over the intimate eatery where renowned chef Jacky Robert prepares a menu of homestyle French favorites. Cape Cod oysters, sautéed scallops, and Bay-caught seafood spread across plates, and meat aficionados can fix fangs into chicken dishes or the beef short-rib bourguignon or branch out to cakes fashioned from vegan quinoa. Junior foodies peruse a kids' menu laden with pintsize French favorites, including a parisian hot dog and a 5-ounce skirt steak, with all proceeds going to chef Jacky's charity committed to feeding underprivileged children in the Philippines.
Francophiles, oenophiles and jazz lovers adore Les Zygomates, a French wine bar/bistro in the Leather District that offers something for each kind of fan. The name of the restaurant roughly translates to “the muscles in the face that make you smile,” which it aims to inspire with its French cuisine, award-winning wine list and live jazz and blues performances offered most nights. The dinner prix-fixe three-course menu is a popular option, as are bistro standards like French onion soup, escargot with garlic butter and steak frites. The restaurant also has a popular raw bar with a changing roster of fresh seafood. One of the best deals is a dish composed of half a dozen oysters and clams, four shrimp and two crab claws. It is perfect for matching with a glass of wine or a creative cocktail like the Dead Can Dance.
No. 9 Park
The first of acclaimed chef Barbara Lynch’s restaurants, No. 9 Park represents the James Beard Award Winner to a tee, from the elegantly refined fare to the carefully crafted cocktails and hand-selected wines. An expanse of dark wood floors unfurls across the historic Beacon Hill townhouse, juxtaposed by soft taupe walls and the shimmer of antique chandeliers. A blend of Italian and French traditions, Lynch’s cuisine effortlessly complements the swank decor, comforting palates with housemade prune-stuffed gnocchi, Colorado lamb loin dressed with pea green and pistachio pesto, and perfectly seared prime hanger steak with Nova Scotia lobster.
Though desserts––such as the pomegranate and earl-grey tres leches cake––partner just fine with dinner, guests will surely want to pair their meal with something from the bar as well. Perfectly balanced, every drink is thoroughly researched first, allowing the mixologists to understand how it was born and why. The result: an assortment of unique creations—laced with everything from smoky scotch to foie gras-washed bourbon—to complement Chef Lynch’s unique fare. It’s no wonder Eater named No. 9 as the city’s best cocktail bar, an honor that is only further substantiated by sommelier Cat Silirie's James Beard Award-winning wine list.
