Last night, Mike and I tried out “Sundaes on Saturday,” a dessert buffet held every Saturday at The Bristol Lounge inside Four Seasons hotel in Boston. Four Seasons is located in the Back Bay area of Boston. We saw this buffet featured on a Travel Channel “Buffet Paradise” episode and decided we had to check it out! You can walk across the street to Boston Public Garden. Located about a block away is Boston Common, oldest park in the country and starting location of the Freedom Trail.
Every Saturday night from 9:00pm-Midnight, The Bristol Lounge offers a dessert buffet featuring homemade desserts and ice cream. A full drink menu is also available.
I loved the look of the lounge, casual and relaxing, yet elegant with comfortable couches to relax on, classy design, and a stylish presentation of the desserts. I was hoping for some better views, unfortunately, this lounge is located on the 1st level of the hotel. There are floor to ceiling windows with views of Boston Public Garden, however, this only benefits daytime visitors.
Fancy extra touches such as gold silverware, a unique table design & centerpiece, and dim lighting added to the ambiance. Take an up close look at the dessert spread offered…
Executive Chef Tim Fonseca treats guests to liquid nitrogen ice cream during this dessert buffet. I only tried out the vanilla. Three other varieties were available (chocolate, chocolate brownie, banana toffee), along with toppings such as whip cream, white chocolate pecans, and more! The ice cream was a creamy, delicious treat!
Another great treat offered at this buffet included custom ordered crepes. There were several fillings to choose from including: chocolate, caramel, and Nutella. I tried the chocolate filled crepe, which was outstanding.
Other desserts offered at the buffet included: chocolate covered strawberries, mini mint cupcakes, mini chocolate cupcakes with S’mores frosting, Cake Pops(one with a cheesecake filling and the other with a chocolate cake filling), and mini lemon cakes.
Although the desserts were good, I was looking forward to cheesecake or red velvet, which unfortunately did not turn up on the table. Those looking to enjoy a fun night out in Boston, complete with a few delicious desserts, wonderful service, and elegant surroundings will have a great time at Sundaes on Saturday in The Bristol Lounge.
