Best of Boston

2005 BEST New Restaurant, Berkshires

Chez Nous

In his newly renovated restaurant, chef Franck Tessier serves extraordinary French cuisine including goat cheese—and—portobello timbale, scallops with saffron risotto, and chicken fricassée. Guests sit in one of three tasteful dining rooms, and pastry chef (and Tessier’s wife) Rachel Portnoy makes a hot chocolate mousse and a banana toffee tart that are sweet bliss.
