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.
