Party Earth Les Zygomates Review

The Scene

Boasting an outstanding wine selection and an intimate bistro atmosphere, Les Zygomates is a prime date night destination for those looking for a taste of Paris near downtown Boston.

Boasting an outstanding wine selection and an intimate bistro atmosphere, Les Zygomates is a prime date night destination for those looking for a taste of Paris near downtown Boston.

The business people and artsy types who settle in at the candlelit tables shouldn’t be fooled by the delicious bistro fair and perfectly prepared raw oysters – this nightspot is first and foremost a wine bar, as evidenced by the two hundred bottles artfully arranged behind the bar.

On Tuesday nights, the bar hosts themed wine tastings, with family-style seating offering singles a great chance to mingle while sampling wines from around the globe.

As the weekend nears, packs of young professionals, bohemians, and wine lovers fill the tables looking out to South Street, or congregate at the zinc bar for after-work chitchat.

Vintage Art Deco posters on the exposed brick walls and a live jazz band add to the romantic atmosphere that marks the bar as a favorite for first dates and anniversaries.

Despite the elegant décor and clientele, Les Zygomates maintains a casual and playful vibe perfect for a low-key evening of cocktails and conversation.

Old Pare´ meets Trendy Boston
Morgan M. Nov 29, 2012
Imagine the seductive tastes and smells of old Pare´ right in the heart of downtown Boston. The elegance of the vintage Art Deco decor coupled with top notch traditional French cuisine makes this restaurant a fortunate find. With candle lit tables and Boston's finest live performers playing Euro-mood music, dining at Les Zygomates is ideal for a mid-week venture to Paris within a single dining experience. Whether on a romantic date or a business dinner meeting, Les Zygomates provides the perfect element for both conversational and intimate moments. Three varying dinning rooms afford the absolute combination of wine bar, family dining, and sensuous cafe all in one restaurant. As if the five star cuisine and sexy-chic atmosphere weren't already enough, the actual highlight of this restaurant lies in the top quality selections of European wines and liquors. Savvy servers assist in the selection of complimentary wines with your meal as if they've known your taste buds for years. And the huge line-up of top shelf international brands draws crowds of trendy professionals, wine lovers, and artsy kindred alike. With weekly wine tastings and corporate events, there's never a dull moment at this low-key spot. Conveniently located off of Boston's financial district, and with after work traffic, it's easy to see how this hidden gem could be so popular. Seating becomes limited so reservations should be made early. Weekend or weekday? Take your pick it doesn't matter. This establishment consistently maintains the same level of high quality service, food, wine, and music at affordable prices.
