A good bet for all your fancy-pants-eating occasions (parents in town, parents in town, er... parents in town, etc.), this Harvard Square spot serves up legit New England cuisine with a Frenchie twist, like sumac-scented salmon (what!), bacon-carrot tortellini, and hand-cut fries doused in truffles. Try the Sunday brunch, a $35, three-course prix fixe-tival that’ll leave you stuffed with such better-than-cereal goodies as oysters, country-fried chicken, butterscotch bread pudding, and breakfast martinis -- which’s the only type of martini sure to guarantee a great morning with your parents.
