From the ground floor of the Mandarin Oriental Boston, Asana welcomes diners with authentic and pure New England cuisine. Inspired by local and seasonal ingredients, The culinary team applies its own modern twists to the menu, enriching it with both taste and tradition.

The dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking bustling Boylston Street, gives the space a modern flare that is as vibrant as its Back Bay surroundings. While the hand-carved limestone block walls, rich exotic wood floors, and stylish banquette seating create an organic background for the inspired dishes to truly delight.

For an unparalleled gastronomic experience, the private Chef's Table - which seats up to 10 guests - is located in a glass enclosed room in the kitchen offering a front row seat - almost literally - to all the action behind the scenes.
