Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar proudly celebrated three big wins at the 2018 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards in the Best Seafood and Best Upscale categories, while Chef Alex Chen was appointed Chef of the Year.
Chef Chen now adds Vancouver magazine’s ‘Chef of the Year’ title to his list of impressive accolades, including leading Team Canada to a top-10 finish at the 2013 edition of the prestigious Bocuse d’Or in Lyon, France, and winning the 2015 and ’17 editions of the Gold Medal Plates BC regional culinary competitions as well as the 2018 Canadian Culinary Championships.
From the judges:
“This year it’s the second act of Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar, Alex Chen’s temple to all things seafood in the Sutton Place Hotel, that the judges felt had found its groove four years after opening. The combo of (Alex Chen and Roger Ma) may be the best in town.”
