When I was growing up, I had to eat my entire meal before I could have dessert. It was a real treat to go visit grandma because she would let me eat whatever I wanted in whatever order I wanted and there was nothing my folks could do to stop it. As an adult, sometimes I go out to dinner and order a big slab of chocolate cake instead of a proper meal – because I can. So you can imagine how much I LOVE Café Fleuri’s Chocolate Bar.
The Langham Hotel in Boston’s Financial District is where you will find the elegant Café Fleuri. But you don’t have to be a hotel guest to have all the chocolate you can eat. Normal prices are $38 per person ($25 between ages 5-12). The Chocolate Bar is open Saturdays between 11AM – 3PM and reservations are accepted. However, if you want to make this Valentine’s Day extra special, you can book an overnight Chocolate Bar package and combine an overnight stay with the chocolate buffet on Saturday.
You can have every type of chocolate combination imaginable. Chocolate covered salty snacks. Peanut butter and chocolate. Fruit filled chocolate. Fudgy, gooey, rich, dense, fluffy chocolate. When I visited Café Fleuri for an intimate engagement party, I made an effort to try everything. I stacked my much too small plate to the heavens. I couldn’t even begin to figure out which to eat first. So I just popped bites of everything right on in, one after the other. When I had reached capacity overload, I felt like those starving contestants on Survivor who gorge themselves and then discover there wasn’t as much room for all that goodness as originally thought.
But I’d do it again. Any time. And if my sweetie treats me to this spot in heaven for Valentine’s Day, I might even treat him to Langham’s overnight Bruins hockey package this Spring. After all, it would bring me back to the scene of the Chocolate Bar.
