  3. L'Espalier


A Boston favorite, L'Espalier serves modern French cuisine with a New England influence. There are two fixed-price menus, a three-course offering and an elaborate seven-course meal. Vermont rabbit, caviar, and Gulf Shrimp are some of the dishes diners can expect to find on the menu. A third “Chef's Tasting Journey” menu is available for those looking to sample various items while enjoying a glass of wine or a cocktail. Liqueur-drenched desserts and a sumptuous cheese platter make for a fine finish. The elegant Back Bay brownstone is divided into several intimate rooms, perfect for a romantic dinner for two. You can even take part in the Saturday afternoon tea seating.
