Boulevard > Wiki


Boulevard is a French-American restaurant located in San Francisco, CA.  Boulevard was opened by beloved San Francisco Chef Nancy Oakes, in collaboration with designer Pat Kuleto.  Nancy Oakes is a self-taught chef who went to the San Francisco Art Institute, and has been known for her down-to-earth, yet elegant service and hospitality.

Says Oakes of her cooking philosophy, "When you order a chicken, we actually cook it to order for you over the open fire in our wood-burning oven. There are no shortcuts. Even our pastries and cookies are made in small batches so they have a home-baked quality. We all feel a reverence for the food we use... we choose diver scallops rather than dredged, and fruits and vegetables straight from the farm or the farmer's market. In our kitchen, we all share San Francisco's love and commitment to good food".

Boulevard's building is a 1889 French-style Audiffred Building, and one of few structures that survived the 1906 earthquake and fire.
