People go to Boulevard Bistro’s for filet mignon and crusted halibut, but some walk away with full stomachs and hearts, stung by cupid’s arrow.

Yelp, a favorite online restaurant and business guide, recently sought out California’s 20 most romantic places to eat. Elk Grove, along with Modesto and South Lake Tahoe, ranked among the best for dinner and red roses.

Boulevard Bistro, which opened for business on Valentine’s Day in 2006, made it into the top 10.

Located in the heart of the city’s historic Old Town, Boulevard Bistro is widely acclaimed for its menu, wine list and overall ambience. The wine list boasts more than 50 selections of mostly California Foothill wine. For the food, the restaurant leans on locally grown produce, fresh vegetables from the Central Valley, local meat and seafood that comes from cold waters along the northern coast.

Boulevard Bistro sets the table well for date nights and other special occasions with its mouth-watering food selections, accommodating staff, first-class service and warm vibes.

Among the customer go-to plates are the lamb shank and duck confit. People enjoy meat that is tender and melts off the bone at the slightest touch. From the freshest ingredients to world-class cooking techniques, it is clear that Boulevard Bistro ignores no detail in creating a memorable evening and dining experience. The pan-seared salmon dish is complete with pearl farro, baby carrots, broccolini and lemon beurre blanc. Other large-plate menu items include pistachio crusted halibut and pork chop.

Once your heart rate settles, get your evening started right with an item from the share plates section, which features oysters, grilled bone marrow, pork belly and deviled eggs. Salad options include strawberry, snap pea and wedge.
