on

Raising the “steaks” once again, BOURBON STEAK at Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC has been voted Best Steakhouse by Washingtonian readers in the magazine’s annual Best of Washington survey. Hot off the press, the two time consecutive winner of this fan-favorite poll can be found in the publication’s must-read June 2018 issue.

“We are so appreciative to have received this outstanding honour, especially as it recognises our dedicated efforts to curate the city’s most comprehensive, unique steak program,” says John Gilbert, General Manager of BOURBON STEAK.

Early each year, Washingtonian invites its trusted readers to name their favuorite spots in the District, from Best Happy Hour to Best Bakery. When the results came in, it was a wonderful surprise that valued patrons chose BOURBON STEAK as their #1 destination for superior quality cuts of everything from rib-eye to New York strip. With a wider, more varied selection than any other restaurant in the metro area along with its near dozen accompanying sauces, the voter results validate the team’s unwavering commitment to sourcing the very best for guests, whether from Virginia’s Shenandoah or the pristine wilds of Tasmania.

In addition to restaurant-goers being impressed, the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington has honoured BOURBON STEAK as a nominee for Service Program of the Year and Wine Program of the Year.

One thing is for sure: BOURBON STEAK knows the meaning of a “Best of” kind of beef.

Chocolate and Design at Four Seasons Hotel Milano

With the reopening of its seasonal Sunday Brunch, Four Seasons Hotel Milano will unveil the new décor of its Chocolate Room. This year, Pastry Chef Daniele Bonzi is paying tribute to Milan’s famous reputation for design, with the creation of an art exhibition.

No less than one ton (2,200 pounds) of the finest Valrhona chocolate was necessary to create this new decor featuring geometric shapes, pop-culture and tape art elements as well as three-dimensional installations. Among these, guests can enjoy an interactive sound wave wall filled with chocolate desserts and a reproduction of the famous Needle, Thread and Knot statue by celebrated artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.

“Besides fashion, Milan has also positioned itself as an important cradle for contemporary art and design, and you can clearly feel these influences when seeing the numerous art exhibitions in town, or by simply walking around the city or visiting the annual Furniture Fair. This is what has inspired me to create this multi-sensorial art experience. Just as all the paints and materials used in art, chocolate is a fabulous matter to work with, providing endless ways of use, with various natural tones and textures,” explains Pastry Chef Bonzi.

Certainly one of the most loved Hotel’s highlights since its creation in 2007, this hand-decorated delicacy has successively taken the form of a Ratatouille-themed lounge, a chocolate factory and a tropical forest featuring jungle-inspired vegetation and exotic animals. The Chocolate Room can be visited during the traditional Sunday Brunch and booked for private events, chocolate tastings, breakfasts and afternoon breaks.

A must-go occasion for guests and locals alike, the Hotel’ Sunday Brunch provides a unique moment to indulge in traditional Italian dishes served buffet-style including typical recipes as Milanese-style risotto and cutlets, gourmet selections of cold cuts and cheeses, delicious salads and roasted meats. And with its children’s play area and babysitter service, it is also a perfect occasion to spend a relaxed meal with the entire family.

Located in a dramatically 15th century reborn convent, Four Seasons Hotel Milano offers the perfect destination to spend a family holiday. Thanks to its position in the city’s bustling Fashion District, the Hotel allows an easy access to Milan’s historical quarter of Brera and the iconic Duomo, while for those looking for a shopping escape in the world leading couture houses, the Hotel’s Spa is a serene after-shopping respite to be pampered in with exclusive signature treatments.
