Boulevard Bistro


Based In New York City, NY


BLVD Bistro is a Southern-inspired culinary labor of love brought to you by Chef Carlos. BLVD is not only in the middle of what some call a Harlem culinary Renaissance, the husband and wife team of Carlos and Markisha Swepson behind BLVD are among those defining it with what chef Carlos calls “Crafted American Soul” food. Indeed, the menu and cooking style at BLVD is more than a nod to the classic Southern recipes Carlos learned at the knee of his grandmother and mother. BLVD is both a family business and personal calling. Carlos, who started cooking at the age of 6 while growing up in Natchez, Mississippi, focuses on the food, menu and music—a personally curated mix ranging from classic and contemporary R&B, pop and soul artists, to classic gospel and Aretha in all her manifestations- while his wife Markisha focuses on the business aspects of a shared passion for great food served in a warm, welcoming setting. We hope that you’ll experience a bit of nostalgia at BLVD—recall a favorite, and create another memorable meal with friends and family, and feel as welcome here as you would at your grandmother’s house. All wrapped up in a warm memory, made with great ingredients.
