BLVD Seafood may have one of the best chefs in Galveston at the helm. This is a favorite spot of ours. We usually sample from the happy hour menu which has so many spectacular choices. Tonight seemed busy on the island, so we made an OpenTable reservation online for 6:45 although it was already after 6pm. Walked down there, as it is only about eight blocks from Avenue O Bed and Breakfast. Walking was an excellent choice, because the parking lot was packed! We walked right up and were seated immediately. Our waiter, Denzel, was terrific!! We started with tea; Jeff got the BLVD Mudslide which is beautiful and delicious. Never fails that when a table orders one of these, suddenly errbody wants a Mudslide. It's like dessert before dinner!
Jeff ordered from the happy hour menu: The Wedge Salad which is the absolute best wedge salad you will ever eat. It comes loaded with real bacon, cherry tomatoes, huge blue cheese chunks, apple slices, avacado, and a balsamic drizzle. He also had the Shrimp Kisses and the Crabby Crab Cake. Their crab cake may not be loaded with lump crabmeat, but the corn relish it sits on is delicious making for a phenomenal bite. The shrimp kisses were perfectly cooked. I ventured out and tried the N'Awlins Sampler which features an andouille crusted redfish and blackened shrimp accompanied by fresh green beans and fluffy rice pilaf. The white wine butter sauce was scrumptious! Fish and shrimp were cooked to perfection, as always. Our evening out was the best. We will request Denzel as our waiter in the future. He provided prompt service and kept my tea glass full throughout dinner.
BLVD Seafood is part of the Yaga's restaurant group, so I asked to redeem my $25 rewards card. Denzel came back stating that I actually had $75 in rewards. What!?!?! So, our meal was free and we have money left for the next time. Walking was an excellent choice, and the walk home felt good after that big satisfying meal. Can't wait to go back there!
