In 1996, chef Raymond Ost and partner Gwen Trost opened what they hoped would be an unpretentious but memorable bistro in the heart of Harvard Square. Named for Ost’s daughter, Sandrine’s seeks to deliver an atmosphere reminiscent of Alsace along with a menu that does culinary justice to this region of France.
From outside, Sandrine’s resembles an Art Nouveau-era Paris Metro station; inside mosaics of yellow, cobalt blue and green iridescent glass – the colors of Alsatian wine bottles. Behind the copper-covered bar is a special oven designed to cook the restaurant’s signature dish, flammekueche, to perfection.
