L'Espalier

774 Boylston St, Boston, MA
Max Capacity: 120 people
L’Espalier is often credited with being the first independently owned restaurant to bring haute cuisine to Boston. Located on Boylston Street when it opened in 1978, L’Espalier moved to a historic Back Bay townhouse in 1982, only to return to Boylston Street in 2008 where it currently resides adjacent to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Under Frank McClelland stewardship, L’Espalier has consistently been rated one of the top restaurants in Boston's Zagat Survey. The restaurant has received numerous accolades including the "Distinguished Restaurant Award" from Mimi Sheraton, as well as being the first New England restaurant to receive four stars from The Boston Globe food critic, Alison Arnett. In 1996, Nation’s Restaurant News bestowed L’Espalier with its highest honor, inducting the restaurant into its “Fine Dining Hall of Fame.” And for the last ten years, L'Espalier has remained the only independent restaurant in New England to receive Five Diamonds from AAA.
