Black and white photos of Audrey Hepburn and Paul Newman dot the walls of Off the Boulevard Lounge, offsetting the fresh faces of the lounge's newly minted management team. The antique photos speak to the decor's overriding theme, which blends styles central to bygone eras with modern touches through rich mahogany furnishings, lush flora, and atmospheric black lights. Market-fresh ingredients anchor a trim menu consisting of sophisticated American fare, which diners chase with cocktails in the lounge or at the full-service bar accented by coiling orchids, bamboo, and flickering flat-screen TVs. Open breezes swirl around shafts of sunlight in the bistro's outdoor garden adorned in kaleidoscopic panoplies of flowers and paper lanterns that daub the private space in a soft glow as twilight paints the sky in a gauzy azure.
