Place to Go When Money is No Object

2014 Winner: L’Espalier

Sturgeon caviar. Truffles. King salmon. L’Espalier’s fare is what you’d find if rainbows ended in plates instead of pots of gold. Even its cheeses have resplendent names, like Fleur de Maquis—“Flower of the Brambles”—an herb-encrusted round made from Corsican sheep’s milk. Sitting by the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Boylston Street, finishing a prix-fixe feast capped with petit fours like vanilla-rosewater marshmallows, you’ll realize it’s possible to feel like royalty—even if it’s just for one night.
