Brasserie Jo: Boston's First Authentic French Bistro
Executive Chef Nick Calias is in charge here and strikingly blends the latest culinary techniques with classic French bistro fare at Boston’s first authentic French brasserie opening in 1998. “Boston’s chef community's strength is rooted in our diverse backgrounds and love of cooking,” says Calias.
Perfecting his craft in Brasserie Jo's kitchen for nearly a decade now, Calias has a passion for building the finest dishes with the freshest ingredients. Favorites include Grilled Lemon Chicken Paillard, Chicken Coq Au Vin, Mussels Riesling Marinière, and Alsace Brioche Bread Pudding.
Styled after a typical 1940s French bistro, the restaurant's mosaic tile flooring, dark wood furnishings, and a strikingly eclectic mix of vintage art prints and paintings on the walls invite you to gather either in the dining rooms or at their vintage bar serving up seasonally changing craft made oversized martinis, Alsatian-style beers, and an extensive wine list.
