I had an awesome dinner last weekend at Bistro du Midi, a beautiful restaurant in the Back Bay serving French bistro cuisine with New England influences. Bistro du Midi is one of my go-to spots, especially in the Summer. Their patio overlooks the Boston Public Garden, so there is really nothing better on a Summer evening.
When my friend and I visited most recently it was unfortunately too rainy to sit on the patio, so we sat in their upstairs dining room. I love how cozy it is up there! Some French places can be a little bit uptight, and what I love about Bistro du Midi is that it’s not — it’s the perfect balance of elegant and cozy, and they have the kindest and friendliest staff. I always end up wanting to stay for hours.
Anyway, we started our dinner with some wine and their crudo tasting which included tuna, scallops, and salmon.
Then, we went with their beautiful beet gnocchi which I haven’t stopped raving about since last week. It’s made with aged goat cheese, ramps, pine nuts, and basil.
Then, their Faroe Island Salmon complete with lava beans, corn, and a zucchini flower beignet.
We ended the night with my favorite dessert chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream, and another wonderful dessert I haven’t tried before, the Rose Genoise made with raspberry creme, pistachio, and lychee sorbet.
