Brasserie L’Oustau de Provence Restaurant Review: Owner Michel Boyer brought classic French cuisine crafted with locally sourced ingredients to southern Vermont. Before his move north, Boyer oversaw operations at Brasserie 8 1/2 in midtown Manhattan, and he brings an experienced touch to his Vermont venture. The setting is cozy and intimate with white linen tablecloths, a brick fireplace and ambient lighting. Enjoy one of the brasserie’s signature cocktails, such as a Bella Pear Martini or Clearly Cosmopolitan, as well as Vermont beers and a wide variety of wines from France. Brasserie L’Oustau de Provence's inspired menu includes seared foie gras with plum, apple and pickled fennel; butternut squash farro with Brussels sprouts in a balsamic reduction; beef bourguignon with carrots, wild mushrooms, pearl onions, lardons and celeriac purée; and grilled flat-iron steak with frites and vegetables with bordelaise or béarnaise sauce. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are offered as well. Try the profiteroles au chocolat for dessert or perhaps a Vermont cheese selection.
