Kendall Square’s Cafe du Pays, which opened in July 2017, was lauded by Eater Boston for its deer frites and whole roasted foie gras, as well as the ownership team behind the restaurant. The same group runs the nearby “sister restaurants” Mamaleh’s and State Park.
“If you like that talented group of people; if you’ve been hankering for a taste of Québec right here in Cambridge, with a touch of New England…Café du Pays is a no-brainer,” Eater Boston editor Rachel Leah Blumenthal wrote. “And especially with winter coming, the restaurant’s hearty meats, irresistible house-made sourdough, and maple-tinged desserts and drinks will be the perfect antidote to the cold weather.”
Eater Boston handed out awards in five categories to restaurants that opened in the last 13 months, as well as reader’s choice awards in those same categories.
