Fodor's Expert Review Spiced Pear
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 with attentive tuxedoed waiters and excellent wines on an extensive list, serves creative New England cuisine with French influences. Selections at dinner include butter-poached Maine lobster and venison ravioli. For lunch you might try prime beef sirloin or something else more straightforward. The Bar, which has lighter fare and a signature martini, hosts a Friday-night jazz series.
