Nick Varano is the owner of some of Boston’s best restaurants (Strega’s was voted Boston’s Most Coveted Table- especially considering the likes of Sopranos cast members are regulars), but when it comes to relaxing, he always comes to the Four Season’s Bristol Lounge.

Known as “Boston’s living room,” the Bristol Lounge is most certainly the living room to some of Boston’s most sociable and influential people, like Nick Varano. “It’s a great place for not just Picture 115relaxation, but conversation as well,” Nick told citybuzz.  Offering floor-to-ceiling views of the beautiful Boston Public Garden or sitting next to the fireplace during Boston’s cold winters, the Bristol Lounge makes the average lounge look stressful compared to this relaxing oasis.

On top of the incredible atmosphere is an even better menu, most notably made famous by the Bristol Burger. Using seasonal ingredients for the New American cuisine, the Bristol Lounge has a special for almost every moment of the day. Power breakfasts are followed by power lunches, then there’s the Boston tradition of a ritzy Afternoon Tea that turns into live jazz music and proper New England seafood that goes well into the evening.

“It’s the perfect atmosphere for both business and pleasure,” Nick says. “I can always count on going to the Bristol Lounge and running into a friend, colleague or even a family member… but with me, everyone is family.” Spoken like a true king of hospitality.
