The Goods from Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar
Vancouver, BC | Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar welcomes patrons back for its annual summer Sunday Seafood Boil Series, July 18 – August 22. “We are excited to host our annual seafood boil once again; it has become a favourite tradition of ours and we are thrilled to be bringing it back at such an exciting time of reunions and small gatherings,” shares Executive Chef Roger Ma. Diners will enjoy a multi-course Southern-style experience presented with the refined West Coast flair the award-winning restaurant is renowned for.
To commence the experience, guests will be welcomed with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. To follow, a starter Ceasar salad of locally-sourced greens from Zaklan Heritage Farm greens sets the tone for the summer feast. The main event, a show-stopping seafood boil, comes loaded with lobster, jumbo prawns, clams, mussels, Dungeness crab, potatoes, and corn, all laid out on the table covered in butcher’s paper. The components of the boil are tossed in Ma’s Boom Bang Sauce, a secret concoction of Cajun spices that give the boil an authentic and vibrant Southern flavour profile. A spicy, tangy New Orleans style remoulade and a green goddess sauce loaded with fresh herbs are both perfect for dipping the generous portions of seafood. A fresh from the oven skillet of Boulevard’s much-loved cornbread accompany the seafood extravaganza. For dessert, Pastry Chef Kenta Takahashi gives a Southern staple a BC spin, freshly made beignets served with blueberry compote and lavender ice cream.
