My husband and I went on a Monday night, it being our only night out for a nice dinner while in Boston. We splurged on the 9 course tasting menu for $109 each, and were not disappointed. From the Amuse Bouche all the way to cheese and dessert, each course was it's own experience unto itself. The highlights were the green pea soup poured over a parmesan cheese 'cookie', the lobster saffron dish used on Iron Chef America, and the warm biscuit served with the cheese plate. The entire tasting menu was spectacular, but those dishes really stand out. To top it off, our server promised us that Foie Gras was on the tasting menu. When he learned it was not, he added that 10th course to our meal at no extra charge (like we needed more food at this point!!!)
The only minor complaint about the entire experience was the lack of air conditioning. Yes, it's early spring and weather can change in an instant - but if you're going for a 3 hour food consumption marathon, you're bound to get a little warm. Even just a little air circulation would have been nice.
This being said, the service was impeccable. We were served by seven different wait staff thoughout the evening, and each individual was profesionnal, courteous, and educated about the food they were serving. One server even lent me a hair elastic to help me get my hair up (to cool off a bit).
This was our first time in Boston, and this was our first and only fine dining experience in the city. We have now included the food in this restaurant in our personal "Top Three" for North America.
