Recommendation by Lemi
Since opening in 1978, L’Espalier has stayed true to its fine dining roots, dishing out its well-loved French dishes made with New England ingredients. The original haute cuisine joint in Boston, the Back Bay icon features top-dollar tasting menus—particularly the Chef’s Tasting Menu—that are out of this world, seamlessly uniting flavorful food with an excellent dining experience. For a lighter culinary journey, head to the Salon for one of New England’s best cheese and wine programs. On the weekends, take a seat at the romantic restaurant for a pleasant selection of sandwiches and pastries, accompanied by a pot of L’Espalier’s signature brews during Afternoon Tea.
