What are the private dining rooms like at L’Espalier?

Answers from Our Experts (2)

We offer any of our dining rooms for private events:

A marble tiled foyer leads into the Salon, where a periwinkle blue area rug complements the room's dark hardwood floors. Cozy up with a copy of Chef McClelland's book Wine Mondays in this modern lounge in the soft and inviting booth underneath the light cast by an awe-inspiring clean lined chandelier. The salon is also perfect for people-watching from one of the window-side tables while sipping a glass of champagne from a bottle chilling on ice in the butler's pantry.

Floor-to-ceiling windows, unveiling lively Boylston Street below, illuminate the largest of the three dining rooms. Larger parties are comfortably accommodated and seated in luxurious cushioned chairs with dark mahogany accents. Plush fawn-colored carpet underfoot leads seamlessly into the Crystal Room.

This centrally located dining room is bordered on three sides by a striking steel bar wine case that is enveloped in brilliant sheets of glass. Be seated alongside the wine display in one of the olive satin-lined banquettes, or across the dining room in one of two lush mauve booths.

Take a quick peek of the impressive sterling kitchen on the way to the library, nestled in the rear corner of the restaurant. This romantically dim lit space is perfect for a special dinner for two or an intimate business meeting, and is cleverly decorated with books of various shades of cool blues lining its shelves. Tall shelves lead the eye up toward exposed dark wood beams overhead, adding a rustic finishing touch to this warm dining room.

Instead of renting a private room at L'Espalier, you'll actually be renting one of the restaurant's three dining rooms: the Corner Room, Crystal Room or Library. The restaurant can accommodate everything from small cocktail parties and business events to large family celebrations and weddings. L'Espalier also works as a catering company if you want to host your event in a location other than the restaurant.
