Bleu Boheme Restaurant Review

: Owner/chef Ken Irvine's bohemian bistro and wine bar, with its blue doors, chalkboard menus, stone walls and communal tables, fits nicely into eclectic Kensington. At the bar, a lively set gathers for cheese and charcuterie plates paired with fine wine. Others nibble on Carlsbad mussels cooked in white wine and shallots and served with pencil-thin fries. For dinner, we suggest the coq au vin, an authentic version of the peasant bone-in chicken and wine dish with salty bacon and caramelized onions. Bouillabaisse doesn’t skimp on seafood, but is a tad overcooked. Filet mignon has good flavor --- especially when dipped in any of the three accompanying sauces --- or try another classic French favorite: beef bourguignon. Service is gracious and not at all stuffy, giving the spot a neighborhood vibe. The extensive wine list offers a fun journey through France. Leisurely brunch on Saturday and Sunday calls for omelets, crêpes and pain perdu.
