Best of Boston

2011 Best Romantic Restaurant


We’re not saying the views from the dining room of this grand 19th-century Italianate palazzo make the food taste better. But there’s something about sitting in the glassed-in portico with a view of the sun setting over lake and mountains that perhaps makes diners better appreciate both their meal as well as the company with whom they share it. An eight-course tasting allows couples to linger over an old-world European menu of foie gras and venison, along with a first-rate wine list and service as attentive as at the finest Parisian hotel.
