French
Chef Douglass Williams and the team behind MIDA is proud to launch its newest concept: DW French. Located just a few block from Fenway park, this modern French Bistro draws inspiration from the streets of Paris as well as famous cuisine from all regions of France. The menu revolves around presenting the classics of French cuisine with approachability and the absolute best quality of ingredients. Think warming and savory French onion soup, perfectly seasoned steak with crispy fries, juicy roasted chicken, a crisp and delicious glass of Sauvignon Blanc. The goal is to celebrate the rich history of French cuisine - showcasing the food along with an upbeat and fun-loving attitude.

DW French’s atmosphere marries contemporary aesthetics with design elements reminiscent of a classic French brasserie. The restaurant features a 16-seat bar with an extensive list of cognac, classic cocktails, and French wines. A 30-seat covered patio extends is perfect to take in the energy of Boylston St.

    Food was sensational. Best steak frites in the city. Music/ambiance was on point and Bill, our server was very accommodating and really took ownership of making sure we had a great experience.

    We went for brunch. Very good selections. It was great to be spared a menu with 2 dozen selections. I had the french toast which was delicious and unlike any other french toast i have had. Bravo

    I really wanted to love this place as Mida is regular go to for me but this French endeavor falls short of this great chef’s abilities. We had 7 appetizers and 2 entrees for our party of 4. I think we were wowed by only the chicken. Everything else was good but I can’t imagine recommending them. Cocktails (we had the Frenchie Martini and the Oui Senor) were expensive but that was expected; wine selection was good.

    Service was a bit uneven/iffy. Food was good but my husband’s brunch was supposed to come with a salad and came with frites…and no one checked back for us to mention this to.

    Excellent service, cocktails, food and ambience. We tried a variety of things and all were well seasoned and thoughtfully prepared. The salmon rillette, frenchish martini, moules frites, and crème brûlée were highlights. Fun decor too!
