A few years ago we had been to Deuxave for dessert after a disastrous dinner at a French Fondu restaurant across the road. Sadly at the time we didn't have any more evenings left in Boston and so couldn't return.... This year, as soon as I had booked my flights for this trip I made a mental note to return to Deuxave.
Thankfully, nothing much had changed in three years, except they are much busier especially in the bar !!
Service was excellent from the moment I walked in the door. I had a drink at the bar whilst waiting for my friends and as soon as they arrived we were seated immediately. The Restaurant wasn't overly busy, but it was a wet Monday evening early December, so I didn't expect it to be, it was perfect for us.
We were given menus, advised of the specials and given time to chat and make our decisions. The waitress was very professional and patient with our questions. On the suggestion of my friend, we ordered one of the wines they serve by the glass with our meal and it was delicious.
My starter was the 9 hour French Onion soup. It was perfect. So often this simple dish is too sweet or the onions are burnt. Not here, it was tasty and piping hot. I would order it again and again.
Next I had the duo of venison. This was also excellent. It was cooked perfectly.
Version isn't a meat we can easily find in Switzerland so its a nice treat to have it when I am away, and I certainly wasn't disappointed. The menu (pictured below) had a good selection and we had quite some trouble choosing between all the dishes we wanted to try.
I was glad that firstly, I'd remembered the name of this restaurant and secondly, glad I had some friends to go with as it made for a lovely evening.
I have included a few photos below, but I have to apologise we were having so much fun I didn't take quite as many as usual !!
My friend who lives there is a regular, and she is a bit of a foodie, so when I suggested Deuxave and she gave it a big thumbs up I knew we would have a great meal.
If you are in Boston this is well worth a visit.
