Best Way to End the Week
A sunset, a clambake and thou: Four Seasons’ newest dining experience.
If it’s Friday night, you should be feeling right, as the song (sort of) goes. If you ask us, there’s no better place to watch the sun set on the work or school week than the deck of the Atlantic Bar and Grill at the Four Seasons. For the longest time, and to our infinite disappointment, that gem of a surfside dining venue was closed at night. Then a light bulb went off and the Four Seasons management decided to open it up on Friday nights for—insert drum roll here—clam bakes by the beach. Genius!
Now we can savor the sighs of the ocean waves as twinkling lights illuminate the sand dunes and island music plays in the background. The menu’s not so bad, either: New England clam chowder to start; a clam bake with the requisite lobster, bivalves and all the trimmings; and dessert in a mason jar. There’s only one seating a week, so reserve now for November.
On Friday nights, the Atlantic Bar and Grill, the Four Seasons’ surfside restaurant, serves up three-course clambakes, island sounds and twinkling lights en plein air.
Southern-style hot fudge sundae.
