Saint Germain

Saint Germain replaced Provence en Boite at this location in August 2004. The French country-style interior decor is little changed, and they serve, as their menu affirms, “fine French bistro cuisine in the best Parisian tradition.” Saint Germain, named for Paris’s bohemian neighborhood, has a huge wine selection including several from France. Owner Jerome Vidy offers sweet crepes loaded with fresh berries and chocolate sauce. For lunch, there’s Vidy’s “moules a la meriniere,” steamed mussels in a Chardonnay wine broth. The appetizers include escargot sauteed in garlic, parsley and Pernod butter and “foie gras frais” (a $23 luxury featuring goose liver “over toasted challah bread and berry reduction”). At dinner, they offer traditional dishes like steak au poivre, cooked in a green peppercorn, brandy and cream sauce and served with French fries or “magret de canard,” breast of duck with sauteed spinach and a berry reduction. After it all, sample one of their desserts, such as “the porcupine,” chocolate mousse with whipped cream or “Lafayette,” light chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce.

Saint Germain is open Tuesday-Wednesday, 12:00 pm-8:00 pm; Thursday, 12:00 pm-11:00 pm; Friday, 12:00 pm-12:00 am, Saturday, 10:00 am-1:00 am.
