Boulevard Kitchen and Oyster bar is open for brunch on the weekends. This place took over Fleuri, which was best known for the World’s Best Chocolate Buffet. You won’t be seeing that any time soon.
Boulevard Kitchen provides a distinctive showcase for the celebrated culinary vision of Executive Chef Alex Chen and redefines the fine art of dining with subtle, unexpected and playful approaches to cuisine, service and style.
The interior is beautiful and they have definitely put some money behind the renovations. The space is very open and makes a great setting for dinner or brunch.
The bar area is nice too with a good amount of high tables.
Complimentary bread arrived at the table with a side of butter. There were a few varieties, so we definitely had a fun time trying them out.
Spinach Eggs Benedict ($17) is what CanuckGirl ordered. It comes with potatoes and tomatoes. It rhymes. The eggs came out to be a delicious soft poached, which in my opinion is always the best type of eggs to go with eggs benedicts.
Beef Short Rib ‘Croque Madame’ ($19) has braised beef short rib, sunny side up egg, béchamel sauce on
sour dough bread. It also comes with a bucket of fries.
I found this dish to be very heavy and rich. I almost would have preferred a salad to go with this to counteract the Croque Madame. The sandwich is really a guilty pleasure.
Overall, the brunch was ok, but I felt like I wanted to see something a bit more creative from them on the menu. A lot of the items seemed ordinary. Perhaps it was the items we chose.
