It’s no surprise that we found ourselves heading to Boulevard Restaurant and Lounge again after the first 2 successful meals (the Valentine’s Day set menu experience didn’t count in our books). Credit goes to my wife who insisted on going there for dinner because she wanted the Kobe Chicken that night.
Please refer to the first visit blog post and second visit blog post for meals that we had off the regular menu. If you are interested in what Boulevard Restaurant and Lounge has to offer for Valentine’s Day, take a look at our Valentine’s Day 2014 blog post.
We decided to try something different for the appetizer course though we were very tempted to have the delicious tacos again. We went with something a little more offbeat (well, to try in Red Deer anyway), and chose the Beef Carpaccio. It was described as the finest seared and shaved Alberta beef tenderloin topped with parmesan flakes, arugula, cracked black pepper, and olive oil.
As requested, it arrived at the same time as our main dishes so I noticed that the same plates were used for both the Beef Carpaccio and one of our main dishes. The Beef Carpaccio was presented beautifully, consistent with all our past experiences at Boulevard Restaurant and Lounge.
