Founded as the Boulevard Restaurant by Madeline Crouch and Stephen Maher in 1988. Pioneers from the start, Boulevard was the first restaurant in Victoria Park Village, London. The event catering followed from the restaurant and eventually outgrew it leading to Boulevard Events. We moved to commercial premises in 2000 and haven’t looked back.
We’ve always been a family business with strong community ties, and now run by the founder’s children and chef, Adam. We place an emphasis on the finest and freshest ingredients locally sourced and treated with respect. Beautiful food, exquisitely presented.
Our Green Ethos
We try to ensure all our suppliers are local, of which 90% are within a 5 mile radius. We source locally for many reasons but most importantly to maintain our own strict standards on quality and to help reduce C02 emissions.
We believe in supporting our community and as such have long established partnerships with our local suppliers, some of which have been with us for over 30 years, so as we have grown, they have too.
We use sustainable fish sources, recycle our oil bottles, cardboard and food waste, and purchase products with reduced packaging. We are also fully certified as a Fairtrade company.
On occasions when we require single use plastic catering products, we source them from Vegware, a company that produces fully compostable and biodegradable items. These items are recycled through our food waste by Hackney Council, where they produce compost for Hackney parks.
We also work closely with Plan Zheroes, a community that connects food businesses with local charities in order to redistribute a surplus of food to places where there is a demand for it. We make regular donations to the platform and have provided thousands of meals to various local charities in the past two years.
