Petit Trois | Melrose/ Beverly/ Fairfax | French | Restaurant
Loading...
Petit Trois serves a short à la carte menu of utterly prototypical French bar food. You're here for a simple glass of red wine, filled to the brim of a small wine glass (as is the style in Parisian cafés), and steak frites, the ultimate in hearty French bar food. It's easy to overload on dairy here. Fat Burgundy escargot gush butter and garlic when you pry them from their shells, and you'll need your baguette to sop up the pungent morass from the plate. The croque-monsieur, which used to be served only late at night but now is blessedly available all day and night, is a monumental glory of a sandwich, its ham and cheese and bread base topped with a tower of lightly singed béchamel that's custardlike in its fluffy richness. Chef Ludo Lefebvre has joked that its fat content makes this a once-in-a-lifetime sandwich — any more would be tempting fate. — Besha Rodell

    Petit Trois, the new bar/eatery from Ludo Lefebvre next to Trois Mec, has been fairly quiet during the day recently. At night the space is jam-packed with drinkers and diners, indulging in cocktails, escargot, steak frites and more. But the daytime crowd has not been a crowd at all, more...
