In late 1998, local restaurateurs Peter and Sherree Holloway unveiled what would be - and still is the piece de resistance in their arsenal of eateries, Boulevard Steakhouse. Boulevard was the first prime steakhouse in the area – bringing the feel of the Chicago chop house to Oklahoma City and a top choice for fine dining.
Words cannot accurately describe the dining experience here. It is above, first rate. Warmth greets you as you enter in oak and iron tones. The ceilings are high and the lighting as low as embers. The well-appointed décor, extra crisp tablecloths and napkins, and careful table arrangement, all coupled with professional service, make it easy to imagine you are the only diner there.
Start off in the Martini Lounge - Sexy. Sophisticated. Fun. The vibe at the Martini Lounge is effortless and smooth - like a swanky club from the Rat Pack era. Martini Lounge offers handcrafted cocktails, a premiere wine selection, and decadent food. Every Thursday and Friday, Martini Lounge hosts the best Happy Hour in town, with complimentary appetizers from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. Martini Lounge is also host to a number of talented, local musicians every Friday and Saturday, 8:30pm to midnight.
Then, begin your dinner with the cold seafood platter for the table to share – shrimp cocktail, snow crab claws, half Maine lobster, oysters on the half shell and zesty lump crab ceviche. The restaurant's signature salad has a creamy vinaigrette atop salad greens, vegetables and an entire strip of bacon. The Boulevard has traditional Caesar, the renowned Sheree's Salad, plus a soup highlighting wild mushrooms.
A setting this decadent deserves no less than customaged prime beef at the center of the menu. Boulevard hand cuts its beef, offering three sizes of filet, rib-eyes and strips, with or without bone. From the bawdy Bone-In Rib-eye, which delicately clings to the bone until you summon it away with knife and fork, to the filet is equally perfect, the difference lying only in the characteristics of the cuts: rib-eye aggressively juicy and flavorful, filet exceedingly tender and elegant. Salmon, pan-roasted seabass and lobster tail make fine alternatives.
To many, it's the sides that really make or break a steakhouse, and Boulevard stands above the crowd. The sides are a meal unto themselves. The Creamed Spinach is a must. Side dishes are à la carte, each can feed up to 3-4 people easily.
Pair your entrée with a glass from the extensive wine list, which includes almost 600 quality selections. The wine list, lengthy and well-thought-out, includes a signature wine bottled for the restaurant — a cabernet sauvignon drawn from grapes grown in Napa and Mendocino counties in California.
Signature dessert at Boulevard is the Brandy Ice — a team of vanilla ice cream, brandy, Drambuie and creme de cacao. Chocolate Cherry has layers of dark chocolate cake, dark chocolate mousse, crunchy feuilletine and cherry sauce highlights another half-dozen decadent choices.
