One of the most anticipated fall openings (well, technically late summer), Bar Boulud will open at the Mandarin Oriental on September 16, according to a release sent today. Expect French-bistro-meets-New-England cuisine, plenty of charcuterie, and loads of French wines. There'll also be some burgers, like "The Frenchie" (served on a brioche bun and topped with pork belly confit, arugula, Dijon, tomato compote, Morbier cheese) and "The Piggie" (topped with barbecued pulled pork, jalapeño mayonnaise, and a red cabbage slaw).
The restaurant will be open daily, serving breakfast from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., lunch from noon to 2:30 p.m. (except for Sunday, when it'll be brunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.), and dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Food will also be available at the bar pretty much all the time, including a late-night menu between 11 p.m. and midnight.
Eater previously spoke with Daniel Boulud about the project, which he anticipates will be his only Boston restaurant, as well as chef de cuisine Aaron Chambers.
