Boulevard Brasserie, Covent Garden

I needed to catch up with a friend and Boulevard Brasserie was central and convenient for both of us.  It is a very buzzy location and was packed, even on a Tuesday night.
We had a cocktail whilst we perused the menu and then to begin we had duck parfait with toasted brioche and fig chutney.  It was really delicious, the sweet flavours of the fig and the brioche contrasting with the rich duck.  For main course we both had steak - cooked to perfection with slim French fries and a bearnaise sauce. 

This is a great place for a pre or post theatre meal, or for catching up.  The service was professional and friendly.  Centrally, you couldn't do much better.

Two courses and a cocktail: £29 per head

Value: 7/10

Service: 9/10

Atmosphere: 8/10

Food: 8/10

SCORE: 32/40

I often recommend Boulevard Brasserie to visiting guests. I think it's a great value for what it's churning out!
