For atmosphere, service, and exceptional food, the Spiced Pear is the ultimate fine-dining triple threat. Overlooking Easton's Beach and the north end of the Cliff Walk, this refined open-kitchen restaurant has attentive tuxedoed waiters, an extensive wine list, and a creative New England dinner menu. Selections include a butter-poached Maine lobster and wild Burgundy escargot. Lunch has the absurdly delicious Kobe beef GQ burger. The Bar, which has lighter fare and a
signature martini, hosts a popular Friday-night jazz series.
