Say Hello to Les Sablons

Les Sablons - Instagram

London and Paris come together in Harvard Square with the opening of Les Sablons. The sister restaurant to Row 34, Island Creek Oyster Bar and Eastern Standard (among others) takes up residence in the Square’s Conductor’s Building (a historic relic of the Cambridge subway construction), making the most of the quirky space with a downstairs bar and upstairs dining room. Chefs Jeremy Sewall and Brian Rae take their culinary cues from European classics, offering plates like foie gras, English pea soup and filet mignon with Bordelaise. Spirits star Jackson Cannon will handle the cocktails at the first floor bar and wine director Lauren Daddona has curated a list of bottles from Burgundy, Beaujolais, Loire and more to complement the kitchen offerings. Open now, Les Sablons is serving dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5:00-10:00pm and Friday and Saturday nights until 11:00pm. Call 617.268.6800 to book one of the first tables and welcome the Cambridge restaurant.
