Your Sundays might be about piety. Or pigskin. Maybe a pitcher of Bloody Marys. Perhaps you make room for all of the above.
However, after recently visiting Boulevardier in the Bishop Arts district, we just may be sold on the day?s greatest tradition of all: Sunday dinner.
The newly opened bistro from Veritas owners Brooks and Bradley Anderson and chefs Randall Copeland and Nathan Tate (Restaurant Ava) is packed nearly every day of the week. But when we craved a down-home, traditional meal at one of the most unlikely of dining-out times--early Sunday night--these boys really delivered.
Maybe the dining room was bustling because those other boys (the Cowboys) had played earlier in the week. No matter: We happily scored a coveted two-top smack-dab in the middle of the warm brick-walled dining room and drew up our eating game plan.
The Lemley?s tomato salad ($10), with its pesto-dressed arugula, matched well with a creamy, dreamy mound of burrata.
The already heavily lauded crawfish beignets ($10) are the ultimate fried-food primer leading up to this month?s State Fair.
And charcuterie ($20) and a cheese plate ($16) may be the pièces de résistance to get the week started.
