Sandrine's lately?

Has anyone eaten at Sandrine's in Harvard Square lately and if so, how was the food? Anything special stand out, either pro or con? Thanks in advance for any recent experience you can share.

  1. I have not been there in several years, but the flammekuechen are always delectable, especially the one with merguez sausage. If you have ever tried - and liked - Trader Joe's Tarte d'Alsace, you will like flammekuechen.

      Thanks grey -- that Tarte d'Alsace is one of my all-time TJs favorites, so I'll look forward to the flammekuechen.

        Was there on New Year's Eve. Outstanding prix fixe menu...couldn't finish everything. Had many items not on the main menu as it was a special night. Chef Raymond is doing a great job over there.

    2. I was there last night - Tues night 7pm and the place was empty, only 3 other tables were filled. There seemed to be a group downstairs, as I saw food heading downstairs. We started with the Terrine de Foie Gras Maison Mi-cuit which was wonderful, creamy and rich. Instead of the traditional toast, it came with toasted challah bread.

      For our entrees, I had the Lobster Risotto... YUMMY! The risotto was prepared properly and the lobster sauce was delicious. For $29, there was enough lobster to justify the cost, and it was very filling. My partner had the ravoli du jour... which had eggplant and cheese... he said it was okay, but he wasn't thrilled.
