L'Espalier — the renowned French restaurant in Back Bay — closed its doors last month after 40 years in business. They put up everything for sale, from the industrial dishwasher to the cooking pots to the wine glasses.

It's just one of a series of Boston food institutions that closed recently. Durgin-Park, the old-school New England dining hall, served its last meal a couple weeks ago.

We spoke to Boston Globe food writer and restaurant critic Devra First about how the city's food scene is changing.
