Boulevard Bread Co. Heights Location is Expanding

Big news for the Heights area! Boulevard Bread Co. is expanding!

The restaurant and market said it will be expanding into the New Traditions store, its former neighbor at 1920 N. Grant St.

“We have had our eye on the space for a long time, and wanted to expand,” Christina Basham, one of Boulevard’s owners, said.

Customers can expect to see plenty of changes with the expansion — which has already started and is hoped to be completed by August — but Boulevard owners say the neighborhood feel is not going anywhere.

The add-on will give the Heights location room for about 50 to 75 more people in its main dining area, which currently has about 12 tables. The outdoor dining options are expected to double with the expansion.

Blair Graves, Boulevard manager and retail and cheese buyer, said the location currently has five tables on its deck area and two tables on the sidewalks. With the add-on, patrons can expect a larger outdoor deck and more seating along the sidewalk.

Cocktail lovers will also enjoy the expansion. The Heights location currently offers only beer and wine, but will operate a full bar, focusing on classic cocktails and fresh ingredients.

More take-out options, in addition to a few more items in the deli and pantry, are also planned. Boulevard’s lunch menu will stay the same, but the dinner menu will see more items, including appetizers, happy hour snacks and a small dessert menu.

“We just want to focus on doing a few things and doing them well,” Graves said. “As opposed to pages and pages of items.”

Boulevard’s popular Sunday breakfast at the Heights location will also extend to Saturday mornings.

“This is awesome,” Basham said of the expansion. “All the things we wanted to do, and now we will have the room and capabilities.”

Boulevard Bread Co., owned by Basham and Sonia Schaefer, has four locations throughout Little Rock.
