Whether you choose to sit in the sophisticated, brassy interior or on the heated patio (open year-round), you’re sure to enjoy the upscale atmosphere at this Kenmore Sq favorite. French bistro fare, with a hint of New American panache (mains $20 to $30), caters to a pregame crowd that prefers wine and cheese to peanuts and crackerjacks. Great people-watching on game nights.
