Coquette, Seaport’s newest (and highly anticipated!) restaurant, opens its doors today.
Ooh la la! Get ready to experience decadent fruits de mer dishes in a perfectly charming atmosphere. Coquette, located on the ground floor of the new Omni Boston Hotel, opens its doors today to serve Bostonians elevated seafood dishes with a coastal French twist.
Coquette—named for the French word meaning ‘flirt’—has a mouthwatering menu, inspired by coastal French food. The menu features decadent shellfish towers like the La Flambé, featuring baked oysters, clams gratinée, butter broiled lobster tail, and more. Their raw bar features oysters, shrimp cocktail, and Tahitian Tuna, a French Polynesia-inspired plate with coconut, lime, and charred jalapeño
In addition to coastal French influences, the menu also highlights the intersection of French and North African coastal cuisines. The lamb meatballs features an orange-date glaze with harissa chili oil, and the borek spring rolls are stuffed with ras el hanout-spiced chicken, chopped dates, gruyere, and an Algerian-style sauce of mayo, chili, garlic, and onion. Whatever you choose to order, you’re sure to be impressed by the flavor combinations.
With a casual but sophisticated vibe, this new restaurant will be a perfect late-night eatery, open until 2 AM. The decor is to die for, with chairs swathed in velvet, art nouveau murals decorating the walls, and bright-red Murano glass chandeliers to dine underneath. It’s like a more low-key version of Versailles—perfect for a date night.
Find Coquette at 450 Summer St., Boston.
