Description: Co-Owners Brian Piccini, Executive Chef Christopher Coombs & General Manager/Sommelier Jason Irving are proud of their award winning Restaurant & Bar, Deuxave in the Back Bay. The inspiration behind the restaurant's American Nouveau Cuisine is seasonality, with a focus on working with the finest farms and purveyors, sourcing out the freshest, local ingredients and amplifying their magnificence. The cuisine is strongly rooted in the nouvelle techniques of contemporary French cuisine, married with the splendor of American ingredients in a refined, but casual setting. Deuxave's (pronounced doo-ave) name plays homage to its location at the corners of Commonwealth Ave and Massachusetts Ave.

“Boston's finest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Absolutely top notch! A small hiccup with one of our starters meant the first course was slightly delayed the staff fully explained what had happened and treated us to some complimentary treats to tide us over. When the meal arrived I can only say it was well worth the wait. My Duck confit was amazing and the beef was cooked to perfection and in a way which is a departure from the norm, my friends were all similarly impressed with their choices. Finally we were treated to a visit from the chef who again apologized for the delay earlier in the evening and checked that everything was in order. DeuxAve is a must visit in Boston. Charming staff, amazing food and an extremely talented and humble chef is a winning combination!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

During a recent visit to Boston my spouse and I dined at several area restaurants based on recommendations from the concierge at XV Beacon including Deuxave, Lucca, Mooo, and Sorellina. We were very impressed with Deuxave. The location, decor, hostess, service and gastronomy are all outstanding. It is difficult to find a restaurant that delivers on all levels simultaneously and in our experience Deuxave met our expectations. We had the lobster gnocchi appetizer, divers scallop and lamb for the main course, French fries side dish and cheesecake desert as well as a Brachetto d`Acqui, Rosa Regale, Banfi, sweet wine. Everything was delicious, but the lamb was amazing. Our compliments to Chef, Christopher Coombs. Thank you Deuxave for a wonderful experience.

“Overpriced but elegant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

My scallops were overly salty, and the food was overall a little too rich for my taste. Elegant, minimalist, and a nice experience overall, but I got the feeling our waiter was trying to upsell everything to land a nice tip!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

I recently had the most refined restaurant experience at DeuxAve , Boston; the bartender was professionally friendly and very knowledgeable; the waitress was courteous and efficient but more importantly, the food was divine and exquisitly presented. I highly recommend the halibut as well as the three-flavored ice cream. The ambiance was lovely. I only got a kick of the way the staff mispronounced Deux Ave.
