L’Espalier

Sophisticated, modern French fixed-price menus served in 4 luxe, romantic dining rooms.

L’Espalier is most often credited with being the first independently owned restaurant to bring haute cuisine to the city of Boston, and doing so with a trailblazing commitment to using local, fresh ingredients from New England. Located on Boylston Street when it opened in 1978, L’Espalier moved to a historic Back Bay townhouse in 1982, only to return to Boylston Street in 2008 where it currently resides adjacent to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

In the heart of fashionable Back Bay, adjacent to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Boylston Street, one block from the Hynes Convention Center, Prudential Center and Copley Place. L’Espalier is walking distance to Symphony Hall, Berklee Performance Center and major colleges and universities.
