Fodor's Expert Review Menton

$$$$ Downtown Boston French

Those for whom price is no object will want to dine here, at Barbara Lynch's luxurious, France-meets-Italy-inspired eatery that's arguably the best restaurant in town. It's Boston's only Relais & Châteaux awarded property, a prestigious honor in the hospitality industry. Named for a French town near Italy's border, Menton features an eight-course chef's whim tasting menu (with wine pairings if you so choose) and seasonal à la carte options. Up the ante by reserving the 12-seat chef's table in the kitchen, an enclosed area with a glass wall offering a sneak peak into the restaurant's inner culinary sanctum.
