Coming soon, to the 1414 Comm. Ave. spot that's been Zocalo, is a new bistro from Petit Robert folks Jacky Robert (left) and Loic LeGarrec. Chez Jacky's main courses will be $14.75. It will be very casual, with food served family-style. There will be an array of craft beers and wines by the glass, and outdoor seating during the warmer months.

The menu is still being finalized, but for dinner one might see appetizers ($6.75) such as onion soup, charcuterie, and mussels; entrees like tripe Provencal, roasted chicken, and pork roast with lentil stew (currently there's no steak frites, but we'll see how long that lasts); and desserts ($4.50) including profiteroles, iles flottantes, and chocolate pain perdu.

Chez Jacky will also offer lunch -- salade nicoise ($7.95), a croque monsieur ($5.75), spaghetti with two French meatballs (I'm not sure what these are, but the menu states "they are BIG" -- $9.75), and more. Yes, they will offer the burger dog from Petit Robert ($6.50).

In short, it sounds like Petit Robert for the student set. I envision lots of meeting cute, and future stories for the kids about falling in love over a plate of coq au vin.

I also think Loic LeGarrec deserves to have something named after him here -- if not a restaurant, maybe a dish? Quiche Loic?

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
