What to Eat at BLVD 16's New Lunch

Seasonal-cooking devotee Simon Dolinky finally opened up his Blvd 16 for lunch. The service is centered on his new 'Wich Way menu of sandwiches, which will also be sold to go, along with soups and salads, like his take on Nicoise with ahi tuna confit or the use of Kobe steak in a spinach, mizuna, tomato, and almond salad. Since Dolinky is all about passionate sourcing, expect his versions of classics like the reuben or a BBQ beef banh mi to sing through their simple ingredients, attained through nearby farms or the Kimpton's own rooftop garden. To help draw some attention to the new eats, Blvd 16 will give the first 100 diners free lunch at 11:30 A.M. on Thursday, May 20th. If you have not the endurance or strength to struggle through the free food frenzy, none of the new sandwiches are priced over ten dollars anyway. Take a look at BLVD 16's full new lunch menu below.
