The summer sleeper hit, Boulud Sud at Cafe Boulud Palm Beach is back again for another run beginning July 3rd through September 2. Last year the Cafe Boulud Palm Beach team, executive chef Jim Leiken, pastry chef Arnaud Chavigny, Mariya Kovachera, chief sommelier and Andrew Burns, general manager brought the Manhattan namesake to “the Island” with much local approval and acceptance.
The Boulud Sud encore will offer an a la carte dinner menu from 5:30 to 10 pm Monday-Friday and a $35 three-course prix fixe menu will be available Saturdays and Sundays during the dinner service.
This season Boulud Sud Palm Beach occupies the enclosed, air-conditioned terrace overlooking the fountain courtyard of The Brazilian Court. The space has been aesthetically transformed to mimic the “Sud” style, complete with olive trees, terracotta pots brimming with fresh herbs, topiaries, lanterns and tagines. This garden-esque space is set to take diners on a Mediterranean journey of the senses.
If dinner isn’t in your plans, I suggest Boulud Sud for cocktails and mezze. Award winning Mariya Kovachera the chief sommelier at Cafe Boulud is talented in her crafting of cocktails but I recommend you tap into her wine brilliance for a memorable pairing, Mariya never disappoints. Simple as it is, the fresh ingredients that make up the herb falafel, the Meyer lemon hummus, the babaganoush and the lavash, cinch the mezze as a must-do.
And not to be missed, even if you’re a self-proclaimed naysayer of desserts, Cafe Boulud’s pastry chef Arnaud Chavigny, can make your world spin out of orbit with his whimsical adaptation of the Manhattan Boulud Sud Grapefruit Givre. Simple. Light. Sweet. Tang. Refreshing. This quirky yet fascinating dessert is made up of a housemade grapefruit sorbet, fresh grapefruit segments, grapefruit jam, sesame halva and rose loukoum. Skip the coffee, and have Mariya pour you a glass of Late Harvest Binyamina, Gewurztraminer. You’ll thank me in the morning.
