Fodor's Review

Jamaica Plain's postage stamp–size, candlelit boîte (there's a sister restaurant in Cambridge) is an enchanting mix of Gallic elegance and chummy neighborhood revelry–both in the atmosphere and the food. Simple but high-quality dishes such as hanger steak with tomato-pepper relish and Sicilian-style fish stew—followed by a carefully chosen "one perfect cheese" plate—seamlessly seal the deal. The $48 tasting menu, $35 if you're a vegetarian or vegan (the latter requires 24-hour advance notice), makes ordering easy. Just be prepared to wait it out for a table, or reserve weeks in advance online, as phones are generally staffed by a recording. The stylish, laid-back bar, where you can enjoy dinner or bar bites, is warmly appointed with reclaimed wood and exposed brick.
