Finding Provence in Boston: Miel Restaurant

Looking to escape this extreme winter weather and head somewhere known for its warmth? Specifically Provence and the Côte d’Azur in the south of France?

If you’re like me and can’t afford to take time off right now to jet off to Provence, you’re in luck! There’s a perfect place in Boston that captures the feeling of being the south of France and will make you feel like you booked a one-way ticket to Provence.

The Miel Brasserie Provençale is located at the luxurious InterContinental Hotel in Boston – but of course, did we expect anything less?

While the lobby is very fancy, we’re not quite in Provence yet. This of this as our journey to Provence. It sure beats getting to the airport, waiting through baggage check, and flying over 6 hours in a cramped seat!

We’re almost there!

Since this is a hotel, we pass by another restaurant. It looks pretty good, so maybe we’ll stop by on another visit. There’s plenty of seating, which is nice if there’s a long wait at these restaurants.

There’s a nice ramp with fancy railing that leads directly to Miel. It provides a nice transition from the modern hotel to the Provence-inspired Miel.

With its sunny yellow walls, bright green accents, and pale wood furniture, this restaurant transported me directly to Provence. And that’s even before looking at the menu and eating the delicious food!

I really enjoy this restaurant, so I’ve eaten here a few times now. These pictures come from all my previous visits. They’ve changed the seat cushions from the blue and white toile pattern in the picture below (which I think better adds to the charm of the restaurant) to the dark red in the picture above.

I’ve been here for lunch and dinner, and for Restaurant Week. For its value, nothing beats the Restaurant Week menu and price.

Here is their regular lunch menu from this past summer:

I have to say, their seating is very comfortable and impressive!

I can’t remember what we ordered on this visit, but I think this was a savery tart. We tried a few different items, and everything was so fresh and light. It was all so good!

For dessert we selected a few different items that sounded good. They looked and tasted delicious, and we were very happy with our choices.
