With cooler temps on the horizon (and in the forecast), it’s the perfect time to bundle up and head to Noir for a cheesy midweek pick-me-up. Every Wednesday starting at 4:00pm, the Charles Hotel’s stylish ground floor bar will have a rotating selection of fondues ready for you to enjoy out on their heated patio or in the dining room. Make a snack of it (before heading out to a movie or concert, say) or stick around and make a meal of it with add-ons from the full a la carte menu and seasonal cocktails from the drink list. Be sure to leave a little room for dessert — there’s gingerbread crème brûlée and warm gateau au chocolat if you’re craving something sweet. Call 617.661.8090 to reserve a spot or feel free to pop-in on your Wednesday of choice. Enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures — cheese, bread, booze — in one delicious fell swoop.
