2022 Best French Restaurant

Ma Maison

Chef-owner Jacky Robert spent nearly two decades as a sort of Jeannot Appleseed, spreading Gallic cooking locally through his Petit Robert restaurants. Beacon Hill’s Ma Maison feels like a fitting capstone to his career: a homey corner bistro with white linen on the tables and escargot, frogs’ legs Provençales, and duck à l’orange on the menu. A wine list hiding treasures like a 1952 Burgundy completes the thoroughly Francophilic experience.
