Boston’s most esteemed white tablecloth restaurant is elegant, elaborate, and romantic. This is the place to pull out the stops for a special occasion. Tasting menus are featured, although guests can mix and match from anything available that day to create their own menu. Elegant options might include butter-poached lobster with nettles, bok choy, and three-cornered leeks, or foie gras terrine with poached pear, white port Meyer lemon jam, rhubarb, and ginger brioche. As befits a haute cuisine French restaurant, there is a lavish cheese selection. Vintner’s tastings are offered that pair with the food tasting menus. After years in an intimate Boston town house, the restaurant is now located inside the Mandarin Oriental hotel.
