Bleu Boheme Brings Guests Along on a French Holiday

Fine Wine and Fare

Bleu Boheme is located on Adams Ave right before the historic neon “Kensington” sign and features a menu that’s influenced by cuisine from all regions of France. Owner and Head Chef Ken Irvine wants guests to come to his restaurant and feel like they have been transported around the world to France, tasting French cuisine that is up to par to its homeland. From a plethora of Dinner Menu choices, you’re able to sample dishes that you might not find in your average local restaurant. Dishes like Escargots a la Portugise (escargot in red wine with tomatoes, chick peas, and linguica sausage) tops the list of unique starters that you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Also, Bleu Boheme creates creative taste combinations that might be are a bit foreign and altogether delicious like their Confit de Canard -- Duck leg confit, lentil beans, braised red cabbage, and roasted Brussels sprouts with green peppercorn-mustard sauce.

Served nightly from 5:00pm to 6:00pm and Tuesdays all night, Bleu Boheme has an affordable, three course “Bohemian” prix fixe menu highlighting a handful of the most notable dishes from their dinner menu. For $24.95, you are able to mix and match a dinner to your liking. Incredible selections like Petite Soupe a l’Oignon Gratinee (caramelized Spanish onions with fresh herbs and beef consommé) and Boeuf Bourguignon grace their current prix fixe menu. Lastly, end the night with a French dessert like Mousse au Chocolat or Profiterole, which is choux pastry puff filled with vanilla ice cream and dark chocolate.

Also, Bleu Boheme offers Happy Hour at their bar. From 5:00pm to 6:00pm nightly, they serve appetizers for $6 each; these include the Calamars Frits and Gnocchi Parisenne. Plus, the bar offers 50% off on wine, martinis, cocktails, beers, and well liquors.

And while Bleu Boheme is the natural choice to host a romantic dinner or sunset rendezvous, the elegant yet unpretentious restaurant also happens to be the brunch and lunch destination for locals in-the know. Visit Bleu Boheme on the weekends for their sweet and savory Brunch Menu, which offers an equal variety of decadent breakfast treats and heartier offerings. For example, dishes like the Gauffre Crème Brulee promises to satisfy that sweet tooth with its brown sugar-crusted waffles topped with bananas and vanilla custard. A generous selection of omelets, salads, soups, and sandwiches quell the appetite and get guests ready for their day.

Lunch brings the same splendor of Bleu Boheme’s dinner menu to midday diners by offering many of the same dishes. Les Planches (boards) encourage the sharing of fine meats and cheeses, and Les Sandwiches are served with the restaurant’s own French fries and/or a mixed green salad.

Bleu Boheme’s authentic French cuisine and Bohemian decor magically transports you across the pond to France. Don’t miss out on their Dinner, Prix Fixe, or Happy Hour menu.
