They say honey attracts more flies than vinegar, which is all well and good.
If you’re a frog.
But at Miel (French for “honey”), the InterContinental Boston’s brand new all-night resto, the sweet nectar is luring a decidedly chic crowd.
Sprawled out toward the back of the cavernous lobby, Miel’s French country decor (butter-yellow banquettes, crystal-dripping chandeliers, and scalloped white dishes) perfectly matches its Provençal cuisine.
Chef Didier Montarou plays with the namesake ingredient in dishes like duck roasted in lavender honey and foie gras with honey-port gelee. There’s also a raw bar, burgers, a well-rounded wine list, and an impressive olive oil tasting display.
After a soft opening, the place is already crawling with beautiful people. (Even the hostesses are dolled out by Habit.)
Yet another reason to head over and check out the, um, buzz.
Miel, InterContinental Boston Hotel, 510 Atlantic Avenue, Downtown (617-217-5151).
