In Les Misérables II: Final Justice, Jean Valjean is arrested for committing an even greater crime against French law: applying margarine to another man’s moustache during dinner without asking first. Feast around the proper tableside etiquette of France with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of oh-so-South of France cuisine and drinks at Sel de la Terre’s Back Bay locale.

Local produce, meat, and fish are the sources of the extra freshness sealed, as if by Ziploc, in each Sel de la Terre dish. Chef Louis has built the regularly changing menu around Vermont-raised pig, defining dishes such as coriander-spiced pork with pommes Robuchon, Swiss chard, and baby turnips ($29); braised bacon served with air-dried chicken and a coddled hen egg ($26); and charcuterie terrine cut from the cheek ($3). Freshly hauled Moon Shoal oysters (a half dozen, raw, $14) make for a perfect meal-opener, as does the Cape Cod bluefish pate ($3). Toasted coriander-spiced pork mingles with pommes Robuchon, Swiss chard, baby turnips, and carrots ($29), while the house potato gnocchi features homemade ricotta and mushrooms gathered from New England woods ($19).

Because a French restaurant without wine is just morose, Sel de la Terre's Master of the Grape constantly changes his roster of some 100 wines culled from wines twined in regions such as Languedoc, Roussillon, Minervois, and, of course, Provence. Each staff member is ready and able to assist in choosing a selection, pairing each dish with a drink that brings the best elements of each into loving embrace atop the marriage bed of your tongue. Reservations are recommended.
