THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Truc Restaurant Review

: One of the forerunners of the French revival in Boston, this dark green hued subterranean Bistro in the restaurant-rich South End found chef/co-owner Corinna Mozo at the helm when it first opened. Now Philip Wang wears the chef hat and Karen Densmore has sole ownership of the place. Truc is a French word that means, colloquially, thing-a-majig, and we’ll buy it as this cozy charmer is popular with couples of all persuasions thanks to lovely food that’s beautifully presented. Try the braised rabbit with little dumplings made from marrow or the tiny potatoes with baked filets of pike. There’s a large dessert menu for such a small room and a nightly cheese plate. In cool weather we love the cassoulet with its white beans and a mélange of meats. The wine list is overwhelmingly French-and a good one-with some nice bottles from the South of France. In this stylish room with a stylish crowd, despite its small size, conversations rarely jump over tables.
