- NY COMES TO BOSTONLivingInFranceDined on 9/18/2014Bar Boulud is a 'scene.' The space is very attractive, but the noise level can be deafening. There are lots of small plates. We started with the gougères which came out cold and then shared the small board of charcuterie. The 3 pâtés were tasty; the ham was not. The board came traditionally garnished along with teeny helpings of mustard, carrots, and beets. The 2 pieces of bread weren't enough. Then we had the thon cru which again was tasty, but 5 miniscule pieces. Best was the Gâteau Basque which was really delicious. In fairness, we didn't try any of the main courses and they might be very good. That said, it was great to try it, but we probably won't go back. I suspect this will be a place for tourists but not locals.Special Features:
- Upscale and welcomingCarolVIPDined on 9/18/2014Service was very friendly and efficient, the food was delicious, and they honored our request for a window table. We started with Shrimp al Ajillo and the Salade Lyonnaise. The Shrimp al Ajillo was very flavorful. The Salade Lyonnaise was excellent with chicken liver, bacon chunks and a coddled egg dressed with a nice sherry vinaigrette sauce. Our entrees were scallops and the trio of veal. The scallops were tender and delicious. The trio of veal was very good with melt-in-your-mouth tender veal loin. For dessert the Chocolate Tart and the Blueberry Pistachio Coupe were very good. They have a large wine list; unfortunately most of the wines were fairly expensive even by the glass. We would go back and it is definitely worth trying!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wishing Daniel Boulud Much SuccessDanBVIPDined on 9/17/2014I dined the second day of opening and it is already running like a well run machine. Very professional and attentive staff provided excellent service. A bit pricey for French peasant food. The small charcuterie at $30+ provided three small wedges of different pates and some prosciutto along with teeny sides of mustard, diced beets and carrots artfully arranged. A little too precious IMO. My coq au vin entree was also carefully arranged. Seeing the buzz at the bar, this place is a place to see and be seen. While very good, and wishing the restaurant much success, I personally think Brasserie Jo or Petit Robert offer a better product and dining experience. This may be unfair to say since Bar Boulud has not even been open a week.Special Features:
- Boulud at last in Boston!hdskifreakDined on 9/16/2014My wife and I have been looking forward to this opening for a long while. We attended opening night to check out the place and the menu, and we left very happy. The signature charcuterie plates looked great, but we chose to have a duck and fig pate that was brilliant. It didn't come with the brioche toasts I'm used to, but the house bread was good with it. The Escargot had an excellent balance of herbs, garlic and butter. We could taste every flavor in harmony. We shared an Entrecot (ribeye) served with marrow and bearneaise, along with a side of frites. The seasoning was excellent, and it was cooked perfectly. The sauce and the marrow were the "icing on the top". The espresso and gateau basque were the perfect ending. We'll be back!Special Features:
