Call it a sign of the times. Aujourd'hui, the fine dining establishment at the Four Seasons, is closing. The hotel says the upscale restaurant's last day will be June 27. Starting July, the space will be used for private functions. "Guests and locals alike want more relaxed options for exceptional dining experiences," hotel general manager Bill Taylor said, in a statement. "We will continue to provide that exceptional experience at The Bristol Lounge, while increasing the options for one-of-a-kind functions and private parties, done only as Four Seasons can do them." Aujourd’hui has long been a magnet for celebrity foodies. Visitors in recent years have included Mick Jagger, Carly Simon, and John Mellencamp. That said, even the A-listers prefer casual restaurants these days. Four Seasons spokeswoman Kristan Fletcher tells us that famous folks -- including recent visitor Jennifer Garner -- tend to choose the Bristol Lounge over Aujourd'hui.
