As you get ready to play palate-poker with Boulevard Bistro's menu, ante-up with an appetizer of one dozen of the steamed mussels, which are simmered in a chipotle cream sauce ($8.25), or the bistro's famous lavash and bean dip ($2) with crispy flatbread. From there, circumvent light appetites with a BLT pizza ($8.95), topped with applewood-smoked bacon, fresh tomatoes, and spring greens atop garlic ginger aioli, or plow directly into hunger with a mighty bistro French dip ($8.95)?slow-roasted sirloin shaved and stuffed into an asiago ciabatta bun served au jus and with a choice of spicy potato hash, french fries, coleslaw, or smoky chipotle baked beans. The wild mushroom steak Diane ($22.95) comes accompanied by parsley garlic potatoes and a bistro or Caesar salad and will find a leggy, sensual tango partner in the Wild Horse cabernet sauvignon ($9.50 glass/$38 bottle) from Boulevard Bistro's extensive wine list. Finally, give your carnivorous comedy an appropriately happy Hollywood ending with a dessert of iced lemon pound cake ($3.95) or homemade chocolate fudge brownie ($4.95).
