Boulevard Seafood Company
49 W Main Street
Open: Dinner, Tues-Sun
Price: $$ BYO
Style: An old storefront transformed into a seafood market up front with a casual seafood restaurant just behind, featuring a raw bar with seats.
The Scoop: Boulevard Seafood is part of an expansion by Scott Snyder, chef/owner of Boulevard Five72 in Kenilworth and partner in a wholesale seafood business that supplies restaurants. Boulevard Seafood’s bread and desserts come from Snyder’s other new venture, a French bakery called Conlin’s, which is separated from the restaurant by a shared kitchen.
The Menu: Creative small plates include yellowfin tuna poke (Hawaiian raw fish salad, made with relish and seaweed), gulf shrimp corn dogs and Blue Point oyster gratin. Then there are chalkboard specials such as savory-sweet scallop and shrimp skewers over watermelon, cucumber, chickpeas and feta in a citrus vinaigrette. Entrées center on grilled fish, crab cakes, a tuna burger with guacamole, fish tacos and such, but include fried chicken, a pork chop and an aged rib eye. Seafood risotto, with lobster, bay scallops, shrimp and truffle froth is a fave with customers and staff. Be sure to order a side of salty-crunchy bagel chips drizzled with olive oil. (The bagels are baked next door.)
Heads Up: Flavorful mocktails made with fresh-squeezed juices are lively and refreshing in virgin form or revved up with splashes from your own bottle of wine or spirits.Click here to leave a comment
