Bostonian Seafood & Grill

The Langham

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at The Langham, and it certainly smells like it, too! Delicious scents are wafting through the air as Palm Court gears up for the holidays with its too-cute festive afternoon tea (starting from $698 for two) of beautifully designed confections. Go ham at the festive lunch or dinner buffet (starting from $428 per person) at The Food Galleryshucked oysters, fresh seafood, roasted turkey, Italian-style porchetta, BBQ grills, and a chocolate fountain are calling your name.

Not to be outdone, the Bostonian Seafood & Grill is hosting festive lunches (starting from $268 per person), brunches (starting from $758 per person), and set dinners (starting from $988 per person) that showcase fresh seafood, grilled steaks, smoked turkey with trimmings, and more. A similar feast can be found at Main St Deli, where a three-course lunch or dinner (starting from $428 per person) presents pumpkin cream soup, roasted turkey with bacon and mushroom stuffing, and a Black Forest yule log. For a decadent meal to remember all the way into 2022, a seven-course festive dinner ($1,688 per person) can be found at three-Michelin-starred T’ang Court, where a winter banquet will dish up baked stuffed crab shell and braised South Africa abalone.
