Fodor's Review

In 2008 L'Espalier left its longtime home in a Back Bay town house, reopening beside the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. The new locale, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and modern decor, looks decidedly different. But chef-owner Frank McClelland's dishes—from caviar and roasted foie gras to garlicky beef tenderloin and deconstructed lobster potpie—are as elegant as ever. In the evening, a three-course prix-fixe and various tasting menus, including a vegetarian one, tempt discriminating diners. A budget-minded power lunch as well as à la carte options are available weekday afternoons. Finger sandwiches and sublime sweets are served for weekend tea; the salon menu hits the spot for postwork drinks and nibbles, like a perfectly ripe fromage flight from the city's premier cheese trolley.
