We decided to celebrate New Years Eve in the Bishop Arts District at Boulevardier, which we have been wanting to try for a while now. We love French cuisine, especially in a friendly relaxed bistro setting. It was such a fantastic dinner and the service was absolutely wonderful making it a New Years Eve dinner to never forget! Bring it on 2013!
One of the reasons why we chose Boulevardier is because it had so many options to choose from on their a la carte menu. Plus their tag line is “Food You Can Eat. Cocktails You Can Drink. Wine You Can Afford.” Who doesn’t love that?!
We started with the Big Charcuterie Plate containing:
- Moulard with apple butter, marinated apples and malt vinegar gastrique
- Smoked Pork Rillettes served with house mustard, sweet onion jam and cornichons
- Bay of Fundy Gravlax with a celery root remoulade, pickled mustard seeds and dill crème fraîche
- Country Pork Pâté house bacon with pistachios and pickled vegetables
- Beef Tongue Pastrami juniper with Riesling sauerkraut and Russian dressing
And also the scrumptious Crawfish Beignets, crispy on the outside and velvety, flavorful crawfish filling in the center served with pimenton aioli and sweet peppers. Loved these! It definitely brought back great foodie memories from a recent family trip to New Orleans.
Our next course featured French Onion Soup Gratinee and a Farm to Market salad, along with a Truffled Ravioli.
Mom and Dad both went for the Cassoulet, Stephen ordered the Bouillabaisse Boulevardier, while Barbara and I went with the Bison Filet.
This wine really paired nicely with what we ordered and everyone really enjoyed it, along with an amazing rose brut to start.
This cake was the perfect finish to an amazing celebratory meal.
Boulevardier has made it onto Fortuitous Foodie’s list of favorite restos in Dallas.
Happy New Year Everyone! Cheers to 2013!
