"April in Paris". The pulse quickens, one's thoughts turn to the chestnuts in blosom along the Seine, the toy boats in the pond at Luxembourg gardens, the scent of flowers in the air, dewy-eyed lovers walking through the Tuileries.
As we head into Spring, what could be better then indulging in the "April in Paris" food/wine pairing at the apex of French cuisine in Boston, L'Espalier!
Although expensive by any standard, in context, Wine Mondays is a true bargain. 5-course tasting menu, tasting portions of food paired with a different wine for each course, served in one of the top restaurants in Boston.
Note, this is a fixed menu -- no substitutions -- we are putting our faith in the chef and sommelier. It most certainly will NOT be vegetarian. I will post details when available, but check their web site for sample menus.
>> PRICE: $85 with RSVP (not including tax and tip) <<
You will be responsible for tax and tip at the restaurant. Expect $100+ / person total.
Note change! The restaurant has asked for 48 hrs final count. I will issue a full refund up to 48 hours before the event. After that time, no refund. Please do not book if you are not sure that you can attend.
L'Espalier has to be on every Boston foodie's bucket list. The awards and accolades for chef/owner Frank McClelland's temple of fine French cuisine and superb wine is really too long to list. Elegant, impeccable service, flawless presentation, top notch wine cellar.
Wine Mondays offer the best of all worlds; a selection of wines inspired by the changing seasons, wine regions or varietals, paired with a five-course tasting menu composed by Chef McClelland. With menus and pairings ranging from the classical to the adventurous, guests at Wine Mondays are often the first to taste a dish that ultimately shows up on L’Espalier’s Prix Fixe menu.
We will be seated to foster lively conversation, while sommelier Lauren Collins leads an informal talk about the wines and food pairings.
