Asana Restaurant Review: In yoga, the Asana pose is intended to restore well-being and vitality. The Mandarin Oriental’s Asana does just that for diners. The interior of the restaurant is beautifully decorated in soothing exotic wood floors, limestone walls, sumptuous banquettes and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a view of bustling Boylston Street. The chilled Maine lobster salad is one of our favorite starters, paired with orange pieces, shaved baby beets and lemon vanilla vinaigrette. Seasonal entrées may include red wine braised veal osso buco, Painted Hills Farm filet mignon and pan-seared Nova Scotia halibut with ratatouille and heirloom tomato coulis. For private dining, reserve the secluded Chef's Table, which seats up to ten and offers ringside seats to the kitchen. Don’t miss the “like a carrot cake” that is actually a walnut cake with carrot sorbet topped with mascarpone cream. Wine lovers may choose from more than 300 bottles from around the world.
