Boston, MA — Bostonians looks forward to September. Not because the wicked humidity finally drops, but because The Langham, Boston revives its utterly decadent, nutritionally pointless, completely unmissable Chocolate Bar. The 26th season of the all-you-can-enjoy chocolate buffet presents a new theme, the “World of Langham,” and pays homage to the upcoming 150th anniversary of the brand and its flagship, The Langham, London. As part of more than 100 chocolate dessert combinations, Executive Chef Mark Sapienza and Executive Pastry Chef Ryan Pike feature chocolate dishes from Langham Hotels across the globe, every Saturday in the hotel’s pretty Café Fleuri restaurant.
Wait, chocoholics, there’s more: a new chocolate-themed guest room suite! Like a scene out of “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,” the suite is fully stocked with chocolate and candy as far as the eye can see. For dinner, guests can order from a special room service chocolate-infused menu with items such as piri- piri chili shrimp with cocoa nibs, cocoa dusted filet mignon, and cocoa butter seared New Bedford sea scallops. Breakfast in bed options include dark chocolate croissants and Nutella, banana and hazelnut brioche French toast. In the afternoon, chocolate remains front and center as guests enjoy The Chocolate Bar buffet. Downtime can be spent in the suite watching some of the top chocolate-influenced movies of all time including “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Chocolat” and “Forest Gump.”
The Chocolate Suite is a two-story loft featuring a distinct living room and bedroom with a king bed and queen sized sleeper sofa. Rates begin at $697 per night.
The Chocolate Bar at The Langham, Boston takes place from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. every Saturday through June 27, 2015. Adults: $42, kids: $29. For reservations and more information: 617.451.1900, Boston.LanghamHotels.com.
