Choucroute garni in Boston??

RoyRon Jan 14, 2008 09:19 AM

Does anyone know of any restaurants in the Boston area that are serving this dish? I have never seen it on the menus of any of the more popular French restaurants around the area but it is winter favorite of mine so it would be great to know of the place that does it.

      I had Sandrine's version somewhat recently and it is delicious, enough food to feed a small village. My favorite bit was the pork chop.

          Sounds like the family platter. And, Sandrines prices generally are reasonable.

          I've eaten it @ Brasserie Jo, but that was a few years ago.

            Gaslight has a good version: duck confit, sausage, slab bacon, served on really flavorful sauerkraut.

              Sandrine's version is superb (though Brasserie Jo's is no slouch, either). Have not tried Gaslight's. Aquiitaine used to do one as a nightly special, but no more.

              Don't see it on their online menu, but it was a special at Pierrot a few weeks ago. I didn't get to taste it but my DC raved about it.

                I had the choucroute at Brasserie Jo a couple nights ago. The smoked meats and sausages were great, but the sauerkraut was way too acidic for my tastes, and the potatos were pretty bland and boring. However, it was a rediculous amount of food, probably enough for two, for like 24 bucks.
