Im in love with the place. Its the most original concept in a long time.
Theres been a mention here and there on Chowhound. I went for the hot chocolate.
On Sunday they have beignets fried to order. Actually the price is $7.60 for eight donut hole sized beignets with a side dish of their house made yogurt with lavender honey and candied orange peel.
These belong on EVERY best of the Bay list. The hot crisp exterier is covered with powdered sugar. Bite in and the interior is rich, molten and eggy. Forget about Café du Monde. These are worth a special trip. They are worth the money. It is an experience like Gregoires potato puffs.
And speaking of Gregoire, Boulette also has dinners to go. The link below has a sample menu. FYI, that cassoulet is $45. Havent taken the loan out yet for the liter of egg nog, but it comes in a lovely Italian bottle.
Then there are all sorts of cookin fats, stocks, spreads, dips, sauces and condiments. Move over Pillsbury, you can get upscale cookie dough ready to slice and bake. Theres gallete, tart and puff pastry dough. My type of place. Just put it in the oven.
For dinner Im having the pork belly with cabbage and house made saurkraut. Last week they had a lovely roasted parsnip and crab soup. I was tempted by the quail stuffed with roses and bulgar.
Not to leave anyone out, you can take home food for your doggie. The place is named after Boulette, an agreeable black mop of dog who lies under the table during the week. The dogs food and water are next to the fireplace.
I cant say about Saturday, but this is just a lovely place to kick back on a weekday morning. Light breakfast is available. You sit at a communal table inside of the kitchen. Localed at the Sur La Table side of the Ferry Building across from Frog Hollow, it has a wonderful view of the bridge and the bay. It is like visiting a friends home a wealthy friends home.
There are cookies and cakes available as well. The Hungarian Begil are very nice one with an almost chocolaty poppyseed, the other buttery walnut.
The staff is very nice as well. Heres the link for more info.
