Earlier this month we had a chance to get to L’Espalier for their “express lunch”, at $29 a very affordable way to get a 3 course prix fixe meal from one of Boston’s top restaurants! Part of the deal is going with their set menu, so that had us starting with a salad of fresh greens served atop roasted eggplant–yes, eggplant, something I’d never order! But everything was so fresh, and the lively dressing along with a few walnuts really worked. I had a glass of Gruner Veltliner with this course and that match was spot on!
The meal was topped off by this creatively presented German chocolate cake with wonderful foams and ice cream.
