The staff is a bit formal but very helpful and the space is comfortable with ample sized tables and seats mixed with cozy banquettes all dimly lit with bossa nova playing in the background creating for a rather romantic setting.
Food was creatively prepared and delicious; exactly what I would expect from a French restaurant with entrees in this range. I started with gazpacho that was served in a teapot and poured into my bowl it came plated with grilled calamari, cherry tomatoes, avocado and basil infused oil. Sergio opted for the prix fixe and started with an arugula salad that exploded with flavor between the fingerling potato crisps, and fried (OMG!!) goat cheese croutons.
I ordered the baked sole with potato gnocchi stuffed with horseradish potato on a bed of sautéed spinach and red onion with caper and buerre blanc. Sergio had a mushroom risotto with root vegetables and topped with pea tendrils. Although both meals were very flavorful, I think my meal was better. It was also one of the more creative I’ve had in a long time.
Dinner is going to put a dent in your wallet, but I’ll come back again.
Pigalle is located at 75 Charles Street South (617) 423-4944
Reservations strongly recommended.

I felt the need to up my quotient of #ManCandy on my site. You see I love writing on my blog, but from time to time I just get jealous of all those blogs that have such handsome and alluring photos of men. You can find more photos of David on the Man Crush of the day blog who by coincidence also recently featured him in a post.
Back in early June I included a photograph of the jaw-dropping, hunky model, David Gandy. This time I opted to post photos of a jock who has caught my eye recently. If you'd like to learn more about this Australian hunk you can check out his page on Wikipedia here.
WranglerMan would be so proud of me for this post, although he does prefer his #ManCandy in uniform and playing ball rather than looking pretty.

I always assumed that this 'Mo was out and proud, but apparently Mr. Rocca had always kept his sexuality in the closet so to speak... that is until today.
Welcome to "The Club" Mo... but let's be honest, with a name like Mo it's not a huge surprise.

JordanJaric – (A.K.A. Jason Hanan) I’ve only recently started following, but his story is as dramatic as his good looks and I wanted to feature him right away. This spring he underwent brain surgery to remove a tumor. Despite facing such adversity, his tweets are light hearted, up-beat and funny. You can read more about his story here.
alcondorado100 – I’ve been following Carlos for quite some time. He is the first person I’ve ever featured who I know absolutely nothing about, because he doesn’t tweet in English. The only thing I can tell you for certain is that this guy is gorgeous (or as we say here in Boston, GawJus).
AlanIlagan – I’ve been reading Alan’s blog for years. This handsome guy from upstate NY spends a fair amount of time in Boston too so I’ve had the chance to meet him in person. He’s even more charming in person than online where he’s known to ham it up in front of the camera. I’ve opted to use one such photo rather than his current Twitter pic so you can see more of him (so to speak).

I'm most partial to Big Daddy's Burritos and often order the Fish Burrito. Each year there are new eateries and this year a bakery and seafood vendor have opened for business. The half dozen eateries in this arcade all serve up good cheap eats and the view from the deck only enhances the dining experience. So should you find yourself in Provincetown looking for a quick and easy dining option that won't place a dent in your wallet, consider checking out the Aquarium Marketplace at 247 Commercial Street, easily identifiable by the HRC store that faces the street.
Lightly battered Fish-N-Chips was excellent and filling; $10.95Big Daddy's fish burrito in a bowl is filling and delicious; $8.50

Each Monday I post #MenOfTwitter profiles that catch my eye and whom I think you may enjoy following. Suggestions for profiles to feature are welcome and if you'd like to follow me, you can find me at @BosGuy
Below are a few more#MenOfTwitter you may want to follow.
Rybrator is a young man living in New York City. Aside from his obvious good looks (which I cannot stress strongly enough), I think he is worth following because he's funny. Maybe it's an age thing but anyone who rants on twitter about not hearing enough Britney I find amusing. Combine that with what I think are classic good looks and you get #MenOfTwitter candidate.

However, tonight I settled on an HBO channel while eating dinner - the movie which had just started was called, Adam. I had never heard of the independent film written and directed by Max Mayer, about a young man who suffers from Asperger Syndrome and becomes interested in an attractive neighbor living in his apartment building. But I am really glad I watched the movie... and should you see it - I hope you enjoy it too.
Tracey - should you watch it... bring your tissues.

The "news" section from "Your Town" also includes feeds from local bloggers. Yours truly has had posts on this site in the past, but a quick look at the Your Town: South End might make Bostonians wonder what is going on. Nearly every story appears to be about hotels in Chicago and Orlando... Oh yeah, and lets not forget about the article about the 405 shutting down today in Los Angeles. Glad that was there!
Perhaps this section of The Boston Globe should be called "Some Other Town". You can click on the image below to enlarge the image. Its sort of comical.

After careful consideration, I opted for this bit of French eye-candy over some of the more traditional sights one would come to expect. I hope you approve.
To paraphrase a line delivered by Sally Field at the Oscars, "Do you like me? Do you really, really like me?"
