The Beacon Hill Bistro Restaurant Review

: Though nestled in a posh section of Boston, The Beacon Hill Bistro, owned by Peter and Cecilia Rait, is entirely devoid of attitude. The long, slender, bright restaurant is lined with torch-like sconces and has a cozy eight-seat bar; a rather reasonable wine list is available, too. While you will find neighborhood sophisticates here, it’s also a tourist favorite due to its ideal location. The ever-changing seasonal menu may include dishes like winter citrus risotto with chicory-dusted Maine shrimp and pea tendrils, as well as locally caught seafood. Bistro plates boast a mixture of local products and provincial French dishes like steak frites and a cassoulet of confit duck leg, pork sausage and ragoût of heirloom beans. Starters feature steamed mussels and house-made charcuterie while main dishes include braised beef short ribs with soft buttered cabbage and red wine-glazed carrots. The dessert cart offers a tempting lemon tart and chocolate mousse tart topped with caramel. Brunch and lunch star simple favorites and several standouts like salmon marinière with red wine syrup and, of course, french toast with cider braised apples and spiced crème fraîche.
