Best of Boston

2001 Best Romantic Restaurant


Planning to pop the question? Get thee to L’Espalier, a restaurant so famous for serving as the site of proposals that the front dining room has been nicknamed the “seduction room.” You will also be seduced by chef Frank McClelland’s sumptuously rich French fare, and the elegant and efficient waitstaff that serves it. The three- or seven-course prix fixe menu is always perfectly composed with seasonal selections made from local ingredients, leaving those with romance on their minds free to concentrate on more important things.
