L'Espalier: A User's Guide

New England–French Fusion | Local Ingredients | Vegetarian Degustation | Weekend Tea Parties | Ultramodern Decor

Sample Menu

  • First course: roasted Hudson Valley foie gras with muscat-macerated strawberries, Sicilian pistachios, and beets cooked in embers
  • Second course: hot smoked Columbia River salmon with seasonal vegetables from Apple Street Farm and tomato jam
  • Dessert: sunflower-honey sponge cake with pansies and honey frozen yogurt

When to Go: L'Espalier serves lunch and dinner daily, but guests can also book a reservation for the restaurant's charming Fantasy Tea Party on Saturdays and Sundays from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. During this time, eager Anglophiles can nibble on delicate tea sandwiches and petits fours between sips of one of more than 15 teas.

While You're Waiting

  • Honor Chef Frank McClelland, who grows much of the restaurant's produce on his own farm, by planting an amuse-bouche under your chair and waiting patiently for it to sprout.
  • Ogle the dining room's ultramodern decor and custom chandeliers—both the result of the renowned interior-design firm Projects Design Associates.

Inside Tips

  • Herbivores rejoice! L'Espalier offers a four-course degustation of seasonal vegetables that's 100% vegetarian.
  • If you’re a cheese aficionado, don’t miss fromager Louis Risoli's lovingly curated à la carte cheese tray, which was named the city's best by Boston Magazine.
  • Make reservations before you go.
  • Look the part. Though there is no set-in-stone dress code, the restaurant prefers guests wear jackets and ties.

While You're in the Neighborhood
Before: Pore over some long-forgotten tomes at Raven Used Books (263 Newbury Street), which Boston Magazine named the city's top used bookstore in 2012.

After: Treat your ears to the same rapturous joy that your mouth just experienced with a show from the Boston Symphony Orchestra (301 Massachusetts Avenue).

Boston Restaurant Guide

Boston may be known for its seafood, but it also has a lot more to offer to anyone willing to venture outside of their own neighborhood for a meal. The exciting cultural variety in the city is put on display in many ethnic Boston restaurants. With the diversity of cuisine available, it is possible to travel the world by plate without ever leaving the city.

Pasta E. Pomodoro in Boston's North End offers authentic Italian dishes that cannot be found on the menus of more commercialized Italian joints. An example is Pollo Ripienoa, which is a breaded chicken breast scattered with mushrooms, asiago cheese and prosciutto and served with garlic mashed potatoes and a shiitake Marsala wine sauce. Pomodoro also serves a variety of appetizers and desserts to complete any hearty Italian meal.

Get a taste of the Mediterranean while dining in Boston with a meal at Oleana Restaurant. Located in the Inman Square neighborhood, Oleana is known for its Turkish fare. For appetizers, order the chickpea crepe with a cinnamon aioli, a speciality of the house. For entrees, the restaurant is best known for its lamb steak cooked in Turkish spices and served with a fava bean moussaka. Make sure to save room for dessert and end the meal with one of Oleana's specialty ice creams. The cocoa-rose ice cream served with date-rose truffles is a very popular choice.

A guide to dining in Boston is never complete without a seafood restaurant on the list. End the experience with cuisines from around the world with a meal at the famous Neptune Oyster in the North End. Choose from classics like New England Clam chowder or try something more unique to the area like steamed Wellfleet Littleneck clams in a sauce of wine and garlic. The Neptune Oyster is also well known for its raw bar that is always stocked with fresh shellfish and stays open well past the dinner hour.

True Boston food is a multi-ethnic blend of cuisines that locals can sample from each night. When considering what to have for dinner, be adventurous and try some of the more unusual dining options that Boston restaurants located throughout the city have to offer.
