BLVD Kitchen and Bar--Minnetonka, MN

Every once in a long while--maybe a year or two--a meal delivers for me what borders on a religious experience. Wednesday night I had such an experience and it happened at BLVD Kitchen and Bar in Minnetonka. I love jambalaya and order it more times than not when I see it on the menu. Indeed, I had jambalaya on the first date with the woman who would eventually become my wife. No event will be quite as amazing as a date with Jenny, but when it comes to the jambalaya itself? Well, nothing compares to the dish I had at BLVD. Piping hot and loaded with seafood, there was delicious meat of some sort with every--and I mean every--forkful. The fish was tender, the shrimp succulent and the dish was spiced to perfection. Also, the prompt service (ask for Denise, who will treat you with the utmost care) was with a smile, with the dish coming out in little more than ten minutes after ordering. I've been to BLVD multiple times before and they always do everything right. But, that jambalaya. Oh, my.
