cost no object

I'll be visiting Boston next month, and wonder what would get suggested as the best fine dining establishment there, cost no object?
thanks,
D

  1. Go to Locke-Ober for the quintessential Boston experience, hopefully someone on this board will comment as it's been 5 years since I've been in Boston.

    2. If you like creative Japanese, go to Oya. French/Italian..Menton.

      Lots of writeups on the board

          She got to you, didn't she...did she promise you a full service patisserie, or something? Ask the construction workers where their dollar drafts are, and the south end where its friendly neighborhood discount meats have absconded to, before crossing over to dark side.

              Yes, its disguise was probably elegant yet understated, and threw him off.

              She should have named the place "mentirosa" which is Spanish for liar.

        2. What do you consider a worthy cost-no-object restaurant where you come from, dbock?

            @ home in LA: Providence first, Sona second, Spago third
            Vegas: the Mansion, L'Atelier, etc

            Menton looks like a contender........

              i would put the tasting at Clio (in Boston) in the category of the places you mention (except the Mansion, which is arguably a half-notch higher)..think of O Ya as a meal made entirely of amuse-bouches

          2. The original comment has been removed
            1. Have not been to Menton, and so far have been able to resist the Lynch-pods in general, but if price is no object, then O Ya would be my first choice and the second would be Craigie on Main, specifically the ten course blind tasting.
