It might not look anything like the Andes, but this two-story corner café rustles up the finest Peruvian food this side of Lima. Nestled among Harbord Street’s delicious cluster of dining addresses, the Boulevard is warm, inviting, and romantic—although tables are crushed a bit close for overly intimate conversations. Tangy salads precede garlic and chili-laced sea bass brochettes and parihuela spicy monkfish and mussel stew. Coconut alfajor shortbread and liquor-enhanced coffees complete the experience. If it’s open, book a table on the charming shaded patio. If it’s chilly, ask for a table near the fireplace upstairs. Legendarily slow and rather ditzy service doesn’t detract from the dining experience.
