BLVD is a small restaurant in the bottom of a brownstone that does slightly-upscale Southern food. Here, you can get shrimp & grits, fried chicken, or a few different kinds of sandwiches made with their homemade biscuits. It’s a charming little space, and the front patio is slightly below street-level, so it feels nice and hidden. Come for a casual lunch or brunch with friends, or stop by when you feel like eating something fried and/or cheesy for dinner.
