The first runs every Wednesday evening at the Four Seasons Boston: "Burgers and Burgundy Wednesdays – During dinner, choose one of our famous burgers paired with two Burgundian-style wines." I had a chance to try this option this past fall and enjoyed it.
It's not really an "event" necessarily, it's more of a menu option. The Bristol Lounge (the hotel's only restaurant now that Aujourd'hui has been converted to event space) is a really comfortable dining experience. You get their delicious truffle fries along with a Bristol Burger prepared in one of the following ways:
- The Original: House-made pickles and aged Vermont cheddar
- Montrachet: Goat cheese, roasted garlic and oven-dried tomatoes
- Croque Madame: Mornay sauce, Gruyère cheese and fried organic egg
- Grand Cru: Foie gras, sautéed onions and mushrooms (USD 9.00 supplement)
The wine selections included a moderate red Burgundy and a Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Patz & Hall if I recall correctly). I thought the Burgundy was so-so but I enjoyed the Sonoma Coast Pinot. Overall, an excellent value at $30. The wine selections are rotating so give them a call if you're interested to hear what they're serving up this week: 617-338-4400. Or follow the hotel on Twitter @FSBoston. (photo credit: FourSeasons.com)
A separate second event with the same name is at The Boston Wine School: "Get to know the world of Pinot Noir paired with a tasty selection of beef, lamb & turkey sliders. Pinot to the people!" This event is on March 3rd but has already sold out. But fear not- they'll probably do it again in the future. You might also be interested in their April 21st event: Burgers and Bordeaux. "French Cab & Merlot with a tasty pairing of beef, lamb & turkey sliders. Not your father's Bordeaux! $50".
Question of the Day: Have you been to events at The Four Seasons Boston or The Boston Wine School? If so, what did you think of them?
