Lunch at Café Boulud
I recently had the pleasure of lunching at Café Boulud, famous chef Daniel Boulud’s French Brasserie, in the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto. It’s located in Yorkville.
The Four Season’s hotel itself stunning but upon entering Café Boulud upstairs, you can instantly feel the vibe shift. The décor made me like I was an actress in a glamorous vintage portrait taken in a Brasserie in a French city. It’s inviting and makes you feel comfortable. You also feel inspired by the impressive and stimulating wall furnishings. The upholstered leather sofas have a tweed design that simply adds to that vintage feel. The general atmosphere at Boulud is relaxed. It would be a sin for me to not mention that the service here is exceptional. Our waitress was warm and very attentive.
For my drink, I ordered a Cold Press Juice. It consisted of easy greens, carrot ginger, and watermelon. It was sweet and refreshing. I’d recommend it if you enjoy green juices.
For my appetizer, I ordered the Grilled Kale & Fig. It contained roasted fig and duck prosciutto. It was crunchy and dainty.
I ordered Duck Parmentier for my entrée. Yes I know, I know. Two dishes containing duck? Yes and I don’t regret it as both dishes were heavenly. I imagine that somewhere someone is shaking their head at me.
It was delectable and satiating. I felt so content with life by the time I’d finished it.
Dessert was my favorite meal. The Coulant Au Chocolat was exquisite. If you visit Café Boulud, this is a must!
