Sandrine's Restaurant Review

: Its unobtrusive side street location in Harvard Square makes Sandrine’s a true find, if you are lucky enough to come across it. Outside, the restaurant resembles an Art Nouveau-era Paris Métro station, while its interior mixes mosaics of yellow, cobalt blue and burgundy for a French farmhouse feel. You’ll find soul satisfying appetizers like baked oysters Florentine and mains such as pan-seared Hudson Valley moulard duck magret. The polished servers present nouvelle dishes from a wood-fired oven that delivers Alsatian flammekueche, an oval flatbread served on a plywood peel and cut into eight hand-size slices. We suggest the traditional version, laden with nutmeg-scented fromage blanc, caramelized onions and bacon. If you can’t decide what to order, try the three-course prix-fixe menu. A meal here is incomplete without the chocolate Kugelhopf, chocolate cake with caramel coulis, vanilla ice cream and chocolate ganache. The wine list is dominated by French selections and can be quite pricey, but note that there are frequent discounted wine specials.
