The Fairmont Copley Plaza is a legendary Boston location. It was built on the original site of the Museum of Fine Arts. John Kerry’s grandfather committed suicide in its bathroom. And most importantly, last year the cleaning staff stole over $100,000 worth of jewelry from a wedding party. (They were busted). But one of the most notorious aspects of this regal hotel that exudes true elegance is its food, served in the famous Oak Room. A full service restaurant for anyone craving breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you’ll feel as if stepped into the old money world of Boston, no matter your socioeconomic status.
Our favorite meal at the Oak Room is the Sunday Brunch, perfect for a family get together or gab-fest with your friends. While the menu is lengthy and can accommodate even the pickiest eaters, we’re partial to the smoked salmon and bagel served with cream cheese, ripe tomatoes, and capers. It may not be the most original meal, but we like to stick to the classics. There are also six variations of eggs benedict, so get ready to clean your plate.
Besides your options of solid food at the Oak Room, their liquid selection is known to be quite popular. The Oak Bar repeatedly wins the Improper Bostonian’s award for “Best Martini,” and with live music most nights of the week, we bet this is quite the fun room to be in. It may not be a room of your own, but nobody likes an empty bar anyway.
