Chestnut Hill, MA 02467
Inspired by Parisian neighborhood bistros, award-winning Aquitaine brings authentic French dining to Boston and beyond. With three bustling locations - Aquitaine Boston, Aquitaine Chestnut Hill and Aquitaine Dedham - the group of restaurants features menus that vary but universally blend comfort and sophistication with innovative, yet traditional French fare. The wine program is ambitious in both pricing and structure, with offerings from all the important French wine regions, as well as the classic big California and boutique wine houses.
The Chestnut Hill location, which opened in 2000, brings Paris and one of Boston's favorite bistros to the suburbs. The dining room is lined with comfortable burgundy banquettes and white clothed tables. French artwork, posters and mirrors decorate the space, which is both romantic and sexy.
Whether you are looking for an after work cocktail, lunch with colleagues, a romantic dinner or one of Boston's best brunches, Aquitaine is perfect for any occasion.
