Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • JANUARY 7, 2000 OUT ON THE BAYOU 19 Eating Out RESTAURANT REVIEWS This is no Big Mac r0 byTRAYCEDISKIN It's easy to be captivated by that one block of Europe between Richmond and Oakley on Montrose Boulevard, a place where tiny white lights are wrapped around large oaks and diners fill the sidewalks. This scene is real, in part because of BOULEVARD BISTRO, owned by revered Houston chef Monica Pope. It continues to live up to its reputation as one of Houston's top restaurants. Boulevard Bistro is swank and trendy. But with the sleek wood interior and dim lighting comes a genuinely friendly and easy-going attitude that helps makes the place more *X like a classy <^ neighborhood cafe. Af On a recent visit, the ^$p hors d'oeuvres of corn meal Ofy and sage crackers were delicious, although the dry texture makes one long for some sort of dipping sauce or butter. We started our meal with Cornmeal- Fried Calamari ($7.50) which were meaty and lightly dusted with a crunchy, grease- less batter. The tomato sauce was fairly pedestrian—likable, but nothing special. Two other appetizers lend just a hint of the magic Boulevard Bistro can deliver with a slab of salmon. The Tempura of Tuna and Salmon Nori Roll ($12.50) is heavenly, with the tender meat soaking up the orange chili sauce and sting of roasted garlic wasabi mustard. For a more break fast-like side of the great pink fish, try the Citrus and Dill Boulevard Bistro 4319 Montrose Blvd. 713-524-6922 Food: &&&&>£ Service: &&&&£ BOULEVARD Value Scene &&&& &&&£ Opt for bread, water at home OK, if you really must Fine for most Worth the drive, so live a little As good as it gets . Cured Salmon ($7). The rye toast seems the perfect choice to hold the tangy salmon piled with capers, chopped egg and red onion. The solid, mild flavor of the egg mingled with the more potent vinegary capers, onion and fish. Salads don't come with entrees, but some are worth the extra bucks to complete your meal. The Organic Field Greens ($5.50) is a classier, tastier version of the simple dinner salad, with handsome chunks of shaved romano and ., , crunchy apple and hazel- "^A VJ iN 1 C ^ nuts thrown in. The jb Endive Salad O ($7.50) is more T*b adventurous, ^ri with grape- •* fruit, bleu OS cheese, candied pecans and a sweet red wine and honey dressing. The variety and quality of the DI STR^ entrees illustrates the high standards that make Boulevard Bistro stand out from other restaurants. The Venison Chops with Blackberry Glaze and Truffled Country Potatoes ($28), the most expensive item, feature tender meat with a sweet-sour sauce that isn't overpowering or too sweet. The Hanger Steak ($16), according to two friends who ordered it, offers a rich steak sauce. The Thyme Fries lend a smoky, Italian twist to the typical French fry. Like the creamy Horseradish Mashed Potatoes, these can be ordered as a side dish. Even when some of the selections didn't knock our socks off, there was something about each one that made it impressive. The Pistachio Crusted Salmon Filet's ($19) spinach salad proved rather bland and watery, but why complain when the rocky pistachio flakes seem baked right into the fish, creating a nutty and smooth combination of flavors. The special for the evening, Grilled Mahi-Mahi ($16) was served in a well of black bean and corn ragout. It was sheer bliss. When a friend ordered the Hamburger ($12.50), 1 had to rescan the menu to make sure she didn't misread. The idea of a burger plate next to the Hazelnut Baked Duck Breast ($20) seemed out of place; I was mistaken. This is no Big Mac. The B3R Ranch Burger on Pizzette is served with mild, white Cheddar cheese, a caramelized onion with rich saute and apple-smoked bacon. Our server continued to win points by suggesting the most egalitarian, and decadent dessert option, for our large group. The dessert sampler tray included a chocolate cheesecake, a cherry chocolate bread pudding, creme bailee, banana walnut gelato and tiramisu. There was enough for eight of us, making a delicious finale to our satisfying meals. Oasis Esplanade 1 Accommodations fit for a King — or "Queen" L*tA^^kP1 w'Snl v GRAND OPENING _ m .
