Boulevard Bistro serves classic French cuisine in a modest Craftsman in old Elk Grove. Wilton native Bret Bohlmann, a California Culinary Academy veteran, demonstrates plenty of local pride by using produce grown in this region and curating a wine list that showcases vintages from the Central Valley, in addition to selections from around the world. The limited menu tends toward old-school fine dining—filet mignon, foie gras and bone marrow. The restaurant’s scale is intimate, seating 30 patrons in close, but not uncomfortable, quarters. The house-made bread is also a standout on its own.
