Petite Robert Bistro & Alexander Lobrano

Petit Robert Bistro welcomes Gourmet Magazine's European Correspondent Alexander Lobrano on Sunday, December 28 to their Kenmore Square location.

Alexander Lobrano knows a thing or two about French food. Not only has he lived in Paris since 1986, winning several James Beard Awards for food writing along the way, but he’s been Gourmet’s European correspondent for the past 8 years.

His latest book from Random House is Hungry for Paris: The Ultimate Guide to the City’s 102 Best Restaurants, which leads intrepid diners on a tour of the best places to eat (at any price) in Paris, while offering tips on how to maximize one’s experience at each place. It’s also a humorous memoir of becoming an ex-patriate.

In Boston for one day only, Lobrano collaborated with Petit Robert Bistro's Jacky Robert on the creation of a $55 prix fixe (tax and gratuity not included) of delightful French dishes borrowed from the pages of the book.

Le Menu: Demitasse of Clam Soup, Terrine de Champignons, Boeuf Bourguignon, Mom’s Rice Pudding with Pineapple Compote, one glass of sparkling wine

The dinner/reading/autograph session takes place at the restaurant’s Kenmore Square location (468 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston) Sunday evening, December 28 at 7:00 PM. Advance reservations required. Call 617-375-0699.

Copies of “Hungry for Paris” will be for sale at 25% off the cover price, or just $12. Tax and gratuity not included in the prix fixe.
