Boitson’s is a buzzing American neighborhood bistro that serves comfort food in a casual, easy-going atmosphere. Tucked behind a century-old storefront and featuring exposed brick walls, cork flooring, and marble-topped tables, Boitson’s boasts a vibrant bar that attracts a broad range of patrons from blue collar workers to local suits. Owner Maria Phillipis and Head Chef Kris Roberts present a menu that combines French bistro classics such as steak frites and escargot with traditional Southern fare like fried chicken, biscuits, and gravy.
They also offer crowd-pleasers like burgers and fries, buffalo wings, and good old mac and cheese, while chef’s specials include pan-seared duck breast, pot-roasted beef brisket with horseradish mustard, and stewed red potatoes. You can enjoy your meal inside the cozy dining space or out on the deck against a backdrop of beautiful views. Delicious desserts include chocolate espresso pot de crème, peach cobbler, and thick bread pudding while signature cocktails include ‘the Kingston’ made from honey vodka, lime, and mint syrup.
