Sandrine’s Bistro offers hungry denizens contemporary and classic French cuisine by the plateful, with gourmet menus of artfully prepared dishes. Dive into the depths of luxury with the duck foie gras terrine ($19) or an apple-and-gorgonzola salad drizzled with aged port-wine dressing ($12). Astronomers can take a break from naming constellations after Survivor cast members and acquaint themselves with a hefty 14-ounce rib-eye steak flanked by lyonnaise taters and sautéed broccolini ($28). Guests of the herbivorous persuasion can duet with the marinated tofu soufflé ($20) or nosh on the spaetzle and fall-veggie gratin, leek and mushroom reduction ($30). The braised organic rabbit leg ($22) hushes the howls of insolent bellies with a carnivorous cut resting atop egg noodles and surrounded, like a woodland nymph, with mushrooms, lardon, and a maille mustard a l’ancienne sauce. Earth tones and subdued lighting, along with crisp white tablecloths and booth seating, imbue Sandrine’s with a stylish, relaxed vibe, ideal for hugging well-dressed strangers.

Sandrine's Bistro

Leaning on more than 35 years of experience championing French cuisine, Sandrine's Bistro's co-owner and chef, Raymond Ost, brings the same blend of classic and contemporary flavors to Cambridge that earned him knighthood from the French government. According to the Boston Globe, Chef Ost began his culinary career at 13 with an apprenticeship in Alsace, France. Today, many of Sandrine's menu items hail from and are inspired by the region, such as traditional tarte flambées made with crispy flatbread and nutmeg-scented fromage blanc. A fireplace flickers off the zinc bar where mixologists craft specialty cocktails, pour wine, and blend liquors from an extensive bar menu. The decor is elegant, with white-draped tables popping against deep-burgundy pillars and sage walls. Chandelier light enlivens an avant-garde mirror divided into geometric shapes, and sumptuous draperies remind diners to pick their togas up from the dry cleaner.
