Where: Bishop Arts District, Dallas
Look at me back on the blogging wagon!
Last night I had a fun dinner date with my friend Nina in the Bishop Arts District. We decided on Boulevardier—a place I had heard good things about, and knowing it was owned by the same people as Veritas, I knew it had to be trustworthy.
We sat outside since the inside was packed and we’d have to wait several hours (tip: make a reservation). It happened to be a nice night out, so it was fine. We started with their special appetizer–their cheese plate. My favorite was the goat cheese on the upper left hand side. Sandwiched on top of their toasty bread, a slice of apple and a drizzle of the honey…it was love. I’m a big fan of Veritas’s cheese and fruit boards, and this one was no different…except for the price point. This little sucker was $16, but it was justified by the utter quality of ingredients.
We then moved on to their crawfish beignets with smoked pimenton aioli and pickled sweet peppers. This was my favorite. I have to say crawfish doesn’t usually do it for me, but the combination of flavors and the crunch of the fried dough were satisfying.
Finally, our last app was the wood grilled gulf oysters. Nina initially wanted oysters on the half shell, but to appease my mind, we shared the grilled oysters. And I still can’t get over the consistency. It’s one of those foods I really want to like, but I just can’t. Maybe one day, oysters.
Even though I am a food blogger, there are foods that scare me. Foods that put me out of my comfort zone, and oysters, octopus, escargot and bone marrow are all on that list…and on the Boulevardier menu. But that’s what life is about! Trying new things and exploring.
Are there any foods that freak you out?
