Four Seasons Hotel Boston
NY chowhounder staying @ 4 Seasons Boston. I have a really good expense account and was wondering if my friends to the north might recommend the best places to eat within walking distance of the hotel. I eat everything and will be in a group of 6.
Depends, for one thing, on what you consider "walking distance." If money's truly no object and dinner's the meal in question, consider Aujourd'hui (the place at your hotel), No. 9 Park (at the other end of Boston Common from your hotel, several blocks walk), L'Espalier (about 5 blocks down Boylston St), or Clio (about 2 blocks further).
Reservations and proper dress advised at all these.
I've been very pleased with every meal I've had at the Four Seasons. Aujourd'hui is excellent, as is the Bristol Lounge for breakfast, lunch, tea and drinks. Walking across Boston common to No 9 Park can be less than fun when it's this cold, but definitely worth it.
Locke Ober. Your group of six will be happy--order the lobster Savannah, clams casino and JFK's lobster stew. Tournedos Rossini also excellent.
