Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar is adding a delicious twist to its fall and winter offerings, rolling out a new weekend brunch menu on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. beginning Sat., Dec. 6.
Since opening its doors at the iconic Sutton Place Hotel in July, the expansive, European bistro-inspired Boulevard has quickly carved out a reputation as one of Vancouver’s must-try new restaurants thanks in large part to the celebrated cuisine of Executive Chef Alex Chen.
“I’m proud to introduce a new brunch component to our ever-expanding menu,” says Chen. “I’ve designed a number of exciting dishes that feature unique spins on traditional favourites as well as some unexpected offerings that prove there are no ‘usual suspects’ when it comes to the Boulevard brunch lineup.”

San Marzano tomato, chorizo, torn bread, 63° egg), $19.
The Boulevard brunch menu also boasts a number of distinctive seasonal highlights such as Boulevard Wild Salmon Chowder (fennel pollen, dill, Cherry Lane Farm potato), $12;Korean Rice Bowl (Snake River Farm Wagyu Galbi sausage, kimchi, sunny side up egg, sesame dressing), $25; and Oyama Truffle Duck Sausage Pizza (free-range egg, carbonara, parmesan, kale), $22.
