L’Espalier in Boston – July 2012

October 12, 2013

When I was in Boston during the summer of 2012, I treated myself out to the fancy four-star restaurant L’Espalier on Boylston street. To keep the cost reasonable, I decided to go to lunch, where I got a six course meal for only $60.

Case in point: you know the place is elite when the hostess downstairs coordinates with the hostess upstairs so that after taking the elevator to the main floor of the restaurant, you are greeted by your surname.

Now for the food. First, the cream that goes with the bread:

Next, the lychee juice (it did not come with the six course meal):

Now to the dishes. Unfortunately, there were times where I had a lapse and took a bite or two before realizing I was supposed to take a snapshot.

Course #1: Oyster topped with caviar.

For only sixty dollars and the two hours that it took to eat, this was a fantastic deal and a wonderful treat.
