New Feature!



The defining restaurant of elegance in Boston, L'Espalier serves a nothing short of a perfect selection of caviars, cheeses and wines, both within the confines of their formal dining room and in the Salon. Four varieties of caviar are offered (even if you choose to dine in the less "upscale" Salon area) and the extensive cheese selection is a source of pride for this French eatery. Choosing cheeses from around the globe, provides guests with endless choices to please their cheese needs. Served either à la carte course as the Grand Fromage portion of the Degustation menu you can create the plate of your desires. And no worries about the wines offered here; over 500 bottles are on hand to compliment your cheese and caviar just right.





Insider Tips

Jessica Polizzotti

Ten Best Logo 03 Local Expert Says:

"L'Espalier has become more accessible to diners who don't have hundreds to spend on one meal (but if you do this is the place to do it). The addition of an a la carte lunch, and the Salon add less pricey opportunities."

Best for French Because: Beyond fancy you'll find yourself in the epicenter of fine French dining and surrounded by those who are dressed to impress.

Best for Restaurants near Hynes Convention Center Because: The high end French spot in Boston, L'Espalier's Prudential Center location lets guests stay indoors when starting from the Hynes.

Best for Restaurants with Gluten-Free Menus Because: L'Espalier will create a meal to accommodate a gluten allergy, even offering gluten free bread that some claim to be better than the original.
