Wine Monday   |   Cheese Tuesday   |   Fantasy Tea

7PM and $60 per person

At most places of business, Friday is casual day, but at L’Espalier, the atmosphere is most relaxed at the beginning of the week. The first of its kind in Boston, the Wine Monday series was conceived during one of Chef McClelland and Wine Director, Erik Johnson’s midnight sessions in the wine cellar, “pulling corks” and pondering the ultimate food and wine combinations.

Since its inception in 2002, Wine Monday evenings have consisted of a selection of wines, inspired by the changing seasons, wine regions or varietals, paired with a four-course tasting menu composed by Chef McClelland. With menus and pairings ranging from the classical to the adventurous, guests at Wine Mondays are often the first to taste a dish that ultimately shows up on L’Espalier’s Prix Fixe menu.

Participants are seated at large tables that foster lively conversation, while Johnson leads an engaging, informal talk that is appropriate for a range of enthusiasts, from newcomers to experienced wine lovers.
