BLVD Kitchen and Bar--Minnetonka, MN

Last night Jenny and I celebrated our anniversary on vacation for the fourth consecutive year. And, the dinner was probably the best of the bunch.

Jenny had a salmon salad and especially appreciated the flavorful heirloom tomatoes. Wood fired ovens grilled the salmon. Tyler, already having expensive taste at a mere ten years old, had the lobster mac and cheese. It was loaded, I mean loaded, with lobster. I thought it a little rich for my taste, but Jenny and Tyler agreed that the creaminess was just right.

Jambalaya at BLVD Kitchen and Bar
I've had many jambalayas in my life--including during my first ever date with Jenny, in fact--but I have to say on its own last night's was the best. Loaded with mussels, prawns and shrimp, the dish came with pillowy soft rice. The level of spiciness was perfect--as if the chef knew me personally (he doesn't, of course).

The service was impeccable. The staff constantly refreshed plates and silverware and made sure the glasses were topped off. Our server memorized six entrees and two appetizers--no mean feat! He was personable, too.
