Best of Boston

2005 BEST Romantic Restaurant

L’Espalier

Sometimes it feels as if romance has all but vanished. Luckily there’s L’Espalier, where Frank McClelland’s sumptuous cuisine is guaranteed to set hearts aflutter. Settle into a table at one of the bay windows of this charming townhouse, and unwind together as a parade of champagne, oysters (served with a sensuous dab of pink sorbet), and decadent chocolates comes and goes as if by magic through our stomachs.
