Laura had the Citrus marinated salmon – celeriac remoulade and dill oil to start. This also looked great. I hate it when you order salmon and you’re given the smallest and thinnest slice that they could possibly cut! She said it had lots of flavour and got her well on the way to feeling full.
Next up was the main course! And something very strange happened…
I picked a pasta dish?! A VEGETARIAN pasta dish?!!I’m really not a fan of pasta-based meals but for some reason I decided to order the Gnocchi Provencal – summer vegetables, tomatoes, rocket and buffalo mozzarella! And not only this but it had no meat in it! People that know me well will know that I often feel a meal with no meat is not a meal at all. Yet, saying this, I really loved it. There was quite a lot of it as well which is always good although I did struggle a little to finish it. The only thing I would say was that it needed more mozzarella… but then again, I think everything in life would be better with a little more mozzarella.
Overall we had a lovely meal and experience at Boulevard Brasserie and by having 3-courses it meant that we were able to have a nice long catch up. The staff were really attentive and gave us just the right amount of attention and made sure we never had an empty glass. A table of 4 ( A really annoying set of old double daters) arrived and sat on the next table from us about ¾ of the way through our meal, they were looking down their noses and kept changing their orders after they’d already been served (one man demanded chilli and cheese sauce on his pasta dish) weird. But the staff took this in their stride and managed to handle the situation really well and to keep them as happy as they were when they arrived.
I’d definitely return here again. Maybe to try the mussels as they smelt insane. But I would also return for the set menu again. I felt that this was really good value for money and meant that my whole meal came to £24 rather than £37.80. BARGAIN!
