Burgers and Burgundy

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Two options for your consideration if Burgers and Burgundy sound good to you...

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)
I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have a fried egg -and- a burger so I chose the Croque Madame. I thought it was excellent.

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?
