Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with this Groupon.
Like the Belgian consulate inconveniently built in Fenway Park’s center field, Monet's acts a cozy enclave of Europe on American soil. Its French chef works diligently to mirror that inimitable vibe with dish after dish of grilled salmon with portobello ravioli, croque monsieur sandwiches, sweet and savory crepes, and ciabatta pizzas topped with tapenade, pestos, capers, and roasted garlic. Sidewalk seating adds a drizzle of fresh air to desserts of creme brulée and French apple tart, but Monet’s interior keeps the atmosphere intimate with tin ceilings, chocolate-colored wooden tables, soft candlelight, and an extensive list of wines.
