In rapidly evolving Boston, the Mistral has remained true to itself since its inception in 1997 by chef Jamie Mammano. Everything is done to take you away, metaphorically of course, to the French coast. The name ‘Mistral' evokes the wind that blows over the south of France. The decoration transports you to Provence with its pottery, wooden furniture, chandeliers and especially its imposing clock with Roman numerals which, at lunch time, invites you to sit at one of the tables.
Just like the decor, the cooking is simple but delicious, all the more so thanks to the seasonal products. Enjoy pan-fried halibut with asparagus and lobster risotto or grilled Faroese salmon with parsnip purée, mushrooms, peas and herbs. These captivating Mediterranean dishes almost make you hear the sweet song of the cicadas.
