Dear Friends,

Springtime in Boston is not just a wishful state of mind; it is actually a season. Bulbs sprouting. The sequestering of heavy boots, down jackets and shovels. The grass in the parks turning green. The changing of the guard in our closets and in our shoe racks. Asparagus, ramps, and endives. The Red Sox.
Let’s celebrate Spring.

Wishing you the best,

Peter & Cecilia Rait
Owners, Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro

Midsommarmiddag 2015
One of the most ancient and revered holidays of the year, the summer solstice carries with it traditions and customs predating our own. In Scandinavia, “Midsummer’s Eve” is considered by many to be the greatest festival of the entire year. The Swedish celebration of the summer solstice is positively delightful, with special food, libations, activities and games.
Join us at the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro as we commemorate the summer solstice through food & drink with our traditional ‘Midsommarmiddag” or “Midsummer Dinner” beginning Monday, June 15th, 2015 and continuing until Sunday, June 21st, 2015. Available 5:30PM – 11:00PM for $47.00 per person, the traditional dinner will be a prix fixe menu and served in conjunction with our regular menu and dinner service. Traditional and potent acquavits will also be available. But take care, lest they turn you into a Viking!

All New Spring Menu
maple brooks farm burrata

This spring, the Bistro is inspired by the updated flavors of traditional Parisian fare. Executive Chef Lucas Sousa is showcasing the season with special creations, from a crispy duck confit with blackberry and cornmeal cake, to a wild burgundy escargot with spring vegetable fricassee, brioche and bacon. Start with a locally-made burrata from Maple Brooks Farm with oranges, watermelon radish, arugula and pistachio puree. For entrees, our dry aged duck breast gets its seasonal flair from toasted farro, bulb onions, burnt orange, black garlic-carrot puree and bacon ravigote. For a smaller dish, try our kaffir lime curried salmon with grapefruit, mint, and fennel jam or the pork belly with braised shoulder tortellini and golden morels. Enjoy the fantastic flavors of spring at Beacon Hill Bistro!

It would have been the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro Rangers, but unfortunately the children (and their jerseys) are just too small!

We at Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro are proud to sponsor the minor league seven to nine year-old Rangers in South End Baseball.
