BOULEY #French Cuisine

This is an elegant restaurant. The moment you enter, you will smell apples as fresh apples are decorated at the entrance WALL - a wall of fresh apples!

This is part of the entrance after the room with apples where you can wait for your party if you wish. Behind is the restaurant and below are private rooms for private parties.
They bring their own variety of wonderful baked breads.
BOULEY always starts with an amuse bouche to open up your palate.  This happens to be grapefruit puréed and fluffed.
Their presentation is so haute cuisine French and European.  Fluffy type meringue with smoked salmon in between was one of the appetizers.
Special green soup.
Kobe beef cheeks is phenomenal as a main course.
Above is the caramelized pear with chocolate and cream under.
The caramelized pear was complimented by a sorbet with grape sauce on top.

Although they have raised their prices in the last 5 years, BOULEY continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in the city.  Their prix-fixed lunch is outstanding!
