Boulevardier is another reason the Bishop Arts district has become a hot dining destination. Owners Brooks and Bradley Anderson and chef Nathan Tate present what they term “Food you can eat. Cocktails you can drink. Wine you can afford,” with phenomenally well-executed versions of classic bistro fare and a list of 120 bottles skewing well under $100. Pierre Péters Grand Cru Champagne is alone worth the trip on a Friday between 4:30 and 6:30pm, when all sparkling wines above $49 are half off and the oyster shuckers are extra busy. At dinner, try Couly-Dutheil’s Les Chanteaux—a white Chinon—with the bouillabaisse, and Chave’s Mon Coeur Côtes du Rhône with the pork chop au poivre. Last-minute reservations are hard to come by but you may be able to nab a seat at the bar, thought by many to be the best seats in the house.
