Executive Pastry Chef Alejandro Luna Reinvents - The Langham’s Chocolate Bar for Season XVIII
BOSTON, Mass. – August 15, 2006 – The Langham Hotel’s famous Chocolate Bar will re-open for its 18th season on Saturday, September 9th with a brand new theme: CB3. The name, which stands for Chocolate Bar Three, reflects Chef Luna’s premiere menu that features three distinct categories of milk, dark and white chocolate desserts.
Over sixty new dishes will be revealed on Opening Day in addition to three new stations: warm mini chocolate donuts, all-natural homemade ice cream and chocolate brioche paninis. Old time favorites such as The Langham’s chocolate croissant bread pudding and made-to-order crepes will return.
Another important element of CB3 is an add-on Chocolate Fusion Menu, which will offer savory dishes such as shrimp, sweet garlic and fennel in cocoa butter and chocolate goat cheese sandwiches. Chocolate drinks and cocktails, from milkshakes to martinis, will also be available.
“My hope is that this year’s Chocolate Bar goers will indulge in a complete chocolate experience from beginning to end,” says Luna. “CB3 is for chocolate lovers and purists.”
One more update to this season is the presentation, which will have a sleek look, modern décor and a new location in Café Fleuri Updated linens create a playful feel, and three tablecloth colors will correspond to their respective chocolate desserts, serving as a map for the buffet.
