Why no good (or any?) French food in Brookline?

BobB | Nov 3, 2008 08:22 AM

My wife and I were wondering about this recently. Years ago some of my favorite French restaurants were in Brookline (Veronique when it was in Coolidge Corner, and the place whose name I can't recall that used to be in Brookline Village next to the old Checker Taxi showroom), but nowadays there seems to be nothing at all in the area - the closest I can think of is Petit Robert Bistro in Kenmore, and we're not big fans of that.

Are we missing something? I know French food has gone somewhat out of style, but you'd think Brookline could manage to support at least one place serving a classic French menu.
