Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.

I really enjoyed dinner there (last year?). Probably the best fine dining I’ve found in Boston.

Ah, memories...I had one of my first posh dinners at L'Espalier, back when I was an undergraduate and the restaurant was still housed in a Back Bay townhouse [interestingly, my college set also dined at the Mexican restaurant which may have been in the basement of the same townhouse]. I'm surprised, actually, that it lasted a decade beyond moving out of its Gloucester St digs.

 

The story in The Boston Globe wonders what will become of fine dining in Boston, as after L'Espalier, only Barbara Lynch is still making an effort at that end of the restaurant spectrum.

And Park No. 9 was not as good as L’Espalier.
