Steak Frites in Cambridge??

I'm craving steak frites. We're going to be staying in Cambridge tomorrow night (from Toronto) and I'm wondering whether anyone has a recommendation for a satisfying spot someplace that side of the river?
Note: I'm not looking for a steakhouse, rather someplace bistro-ish (whether French or American).
Ten Tables does a bavette steak with pomme gratine instead of frites, a nice use of flap steak, normally seen locally in steak tips.
Garden at the Cellar sells a ton of grilled prime skirt steak (which I love) with rosemary-truffle fries.
Green Street does a nice sirloin, no frites, but you could get a side of fried yuca there, nearly as good, especially with spicy aioli.
Craigie on Main does a fancy hanger steak ($36) in a frying pan with amazing accompaniments, but no frites. Maybe you could get that potato galette with it (hash browns, yes!)
I'm surprised that Rendezvous doesn't have one on their current menu.
