Westfield Welcomes Boulevard Bistro

By Millicent K. Brody

It’s not often that a new Bistro with exciting fare and reasonable pricing arrives in your very own town, but proprietor William Perillo had the vision to create a restaurant in what was once a corner business machine shop.

“I knew Westfield was a restaurant destination. I also know their residents appreciate fine food and service. I do believe you’ll find it all at Boulevard Bistro,” he said.

“When dining out, I like to know I’m going to be fed the finest, freshest food,” he adds. “Our meat, seafood, and vegetables are delivered fresh daily. Our pastas and desserts are prepared in house. At Boulevard Bistro, you can expect local warmth with Soho flair."

For starters, try the Mozzarella Tre--homemade mozzarella with roasted peppers and tomato; insalata frutti di Mari--shrimp, scungilli, and calamari with garlic, olive oil, lemon, and fresh herbs; or Sicilian sliders topped with housemade mozzarella and a fra diavolo sauce. Guests seemed to really enjoy the grilled polenta topped with artichoke hearts and mushrooms in a tomato basil sauce, and calamari sauteed with black olives and capers in a red, white, or brandy sauce.

Salads are prepared with care. Refreshing, organic greens are topped with apples, pecans, and goat cheese, while funghi , or wild mushroom soup, is blended with fresh herbs.

Of course the menu includes a host of pasta dishes prepared in all of your favorite ways. You’re also able to order shrimp scampi and grilled salmon, shrimp, and calamari. Like all other Italian restaurants, chicken is served Balsamico, Francese, Marsala, Milanese, Parmigiano and PIccata. Ditto for your favorite veal dishes.
Desserts range from a creamy tiramisu to Italian cheese cake, tartuffo, and lemon sorbet. Guests are invited to bring their own wine. The staff offers bottled or sparkling water.

With this gorgeous warm weather, you’ll enjoy dining outdoors on comfortable, upholstered furniture....or head indoors and enjoy the bustling ambiance.
