Boulevard Bistro opens in Salt Lake's Foothill Village
Boulevard Bistro, an upscale, casual dining restaurant with a full liquor license has opened in Salt Lake City's Foothill Village Shopping Center. It replaces the short-lived Sonny Bryan Smokehouse.
Executive Chef Michael Jewell got his start and made his career in northern California, with stints as a fishmonger and cook at various restaurants in San Francisco.
After a detour to apprentice in Maui he returned to work in California kitchens.
While in Utah, Jewell worked as the executive chef for Toscano Italian Bistro in Sandy whose owners opened Boulevard Bistro.
His Pacific roots, along with his work in Italian restaurants are evident in dishes like a fish and chips entree of beer-battered Pacific cod fries, bruschetta of the day and traditional margherita pizza.
The menu includes local ingredients, including Utah Red Trout, Shepherd's goat cheese, Creminelli proscuitto, along with house-make pickles, sausage and a changing menu of daily made gelato.
Dinner entrees cost $13-$23 and lunch prices from $10 - $13.
