Best Boston Fancy Lunch

Looking for a fancy lunch spot downtown for this Friday. It has to be lunch- no baby sitter available for the evening. Does No. 9 Park do lunch? Lockober? Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

  1. No 9 only does lunch during the holiday season- aside from a monthly "ladies who lunch" series that they put on. Lock Ober does lunch. Also- L'espalier and Sel de la Terre have lunch menus as well.

    1. I'm pretty sure No. 9 and Locke-Ober no longer do lunch (except L-O did for Restaurant Week). Since you specified "fancy," I'd suggest L'Espalier.

      1. re: Pia

        Oops youre right- Locke Ober doesnt do lunch normally. I kept seeing emails for it- but was for RW. My apologies.

      2. Radius does lunch. You might run into a bit of a business crowd, but the service is great. Still, I'd go for L'Espalier.

        1. Some of the better restaurants in the Park Square area offer lunch. I like Davios in that area; Avila and Via Matta are also good. The Bristol Lounge at the Four Seasons would work as well as the Cafe at the Taj.

          1. L'Espalier is pretty much it.
