This restaurant was listed on my Bucket List post from a couple weeks ago! One of my friends from college, Devon, is an assistant pastry chef at Bistro Du Midi and received an awesome employee of the month gift card in recognition of her hard work! She decided to share the gift card with me so we could eat our hearts out!
Bistro Du Midi is located at 272 Boylston Street, Boston MA. It’s a 2 minute walk from the Arlington T stop on the green line so it’s very easy to find. The restaurant is two floors with the kitchen being on the second floor. The view from the second floor overlooks the Boston Public Gardens! This place is definitely full of class, so dress up! The food and drinks were amazing too so let’s not dilly dally anymore:
Devon and I each ordered a crudite, entree, two sides to share a la carte and one dessert. But since she works there, we ended up getting…
Amuse Bouche: Smoked White Asparagus Soup with Escargot Beignet
Fluke Crudite with Fried Squid Ink and Bottarga Consomme
Faroe Island Salmon Crudite with Parmesan Crisps and salmon roe
Pate Plate with Crispy Pork Belly Pate
Duck Breast with Sweet Potato, Artichoke, Almonds and Duck Jus
Thyme Garganelli Pasta, Lamb neck, Morels, Spring peas, Manchego
Spring peas, favas, crispy pork belly
Mushrooms, trumpet royale, hen of the woods
Earl Grey and Elderflower Souffle
Ice Cream Flight with Black Sesame , Caramel and Ganache, Marshmallow and Red Velvet Ice Cream
Wild blueberry cheesecake, hazelnut cremeux, lavender sponge cake
Mascarpone beignet, citrus sugar, pear cardamom butter
Everything was so yummy! My personal favorites were the Smoked Asparagus Soup, Salmon Crudite, Duck Breast and the Ice Cream Flight! Such a great experience and service was impeccable. We each got awesome drinks that were well balanced and tasty. I definitely recommend this place for a splurge night out! Devon’s gift card was for $150 so after that, her employee discount and the free plates that were sent to us, the bill was ONLY 12 DOLLARS! I literally couldn’t have asked for a better deal or experience!
I have a couple more posts planned coming up but I’ve been busy at work working 6 day weeks consistently so my time is tight! Stay tuned for more things to come!
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
