annual Bristol dinner

In trying to substitute for a real lab Xmas party that hasn't happened for years, 4 of us went to the Bristol Lounge in the Four Seasons Fri. for another wonderful dinner. They gave us the option of being seated at our reservation time next to a loud party or waiting a bit for a quieter table. We opted for the latter and sat by the window so we made the right choice. Such a beautiful, comfortable room. Nice service, not overly personable but he poured the "martinis" well. Two of us got the roasted sea bass w/ warm lobster potato salad which was great ($30). Crispy exterior, moist interior, potato salad was great. Only complaint was some excessive oiliness. One person had a tasty seafood pasta dish (~$24) and one got cauliflower gruyere soup w/ a side of lobster risotto ($8 and $7.50). The risotto was gummy but tasted good, didn't check out the soup. Great variety in the bread basket. I paid the $11.50 for the dessert buffet which is a deal and a half. So many things to choose from, I esp. liked the choc. chip bread pudding, hazlenut tart and lemon pound cake. They also made crepes, had ice cream, choc. covered strawberries, fruit tarts, mousse, etc. When you think how so many places charge $9 and more for dessert, this is the place to go. Altho how much can you eat after a full dinner (more than I should have). All in all, another fine time at the Bristol.
