Sometimes chasing a legend is difficult. In this case the Boulevard Bistro opened in the same location that a very popular New Orleans restaurant, Houstons' occupied. For reasons unknown to me, Houstons' gave up the location, and the Boulevard Bistro moved in.
My brother, who was a huge fan of Houstons', made reservations on a Sunday for our family to have dinner. When we arrived, we found that the decor and ambiance was very similar, if not exactly the same as its previous occupant. And for good reason, its beautiful.
The service was excellent, and Derek, our server was especially attentive to any request. Several of us had the prime rib, and my spouse ordered the rack of BBQ ribs. The ribs must have been very good, because she ate them all, and didn't even offer me one. I reluctantly had the prime rib, I say reluctantly because I don't like the texture. Since I had not had any for some time. I ordered it medium rare, but it came VERY rare and I had to send it back for the chef to put it on the grill for a few minutes, as did others in our party. The staff was very accommodating and responsive to our request. Upon returning with our meal, they even gave me a new loaded baked potato since I had taken a few bites of the original one. That was classy.
I think the star of our table was the pork chop. It was huge. This was a very popular entree at Houstons' and the Boulevard carried on that tradition. I didn't have one but that will be on my radar at the next visit.
All in all it was a first-class dining experience. The food, service and ambiance were excellent. I highly recommend the Boulevard American Bistro.
