A high-protein diet can help build muscle, which comes in handy for fighting off a shark that is also on a high-protein diet. Take a bite out of the circle of life with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of steak, seafood, wine, and more at Boulevard Steakhouse in Edmond. A recipient of Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence in 2010, Boulevard Steakhouse has been serving up a choice menu of turf and surf for more than 10 years. Saunter into Boulevard's velvet-shrouded dining room and choose a meaty masterpiece of hand-cut prime beef, whether it’s the 14 oz. prime rib-eye ($32.99) or the 12 oz. steak Diane ($36), which comes tidily dressed in brandy-mushroom sauce. Boulevard’s extensive wine list makes it easy to find your chewables a potable partner without having to conduct pre-prandial compatibility tests to ensure they’ll get along.
Boulevard Steakhouse doesn't think that beef should be too fancy. The kitchen decorates its custom-aged, hand-cut USDA Prime steaks in nothing but salt, pepper, and butter, preferring to let the fillets take the flavor spotlight. Some arrive completely free of accoutrements, such as the blackened bone-in rib eye. Others have a few costars on the plate: fillet tips come with mushrooms and garlic mashed potatoes, whereas beef medallions pair with blue crab.
Regardless of the presentation, each of the entrees is sophisticated in its simplicity—an ethos that applies to the entire restaurant. The dining area gives off a rustic vibe with wood ceilings and deep red wooden accents, which match several of the wines on a sprawling list. Set against exposed brick, the martini lounge is just as warm and antiquated. Here, bartenders craft classic cocktails from gimlets to Manhattans, as well as seasonal offerings such as The Great Pumpkin, a much better autumnal brew than eggnog or The Okay Pumpkin. Visitors on some weekend nights can sip their drinks as live music fills the space.
