Blue Heaven Restaurant Review

: Opened by a pair of free spirits, Blue Heaven has become its own well-known destination. The chickens and cats roaming the premises are almost as famous as the food. Blue Heaven is al fresco dining, Key West style: canopies of tropical foliage, improvised art (a leopard-spotted mannequin, a rooster graveyard, jolly-colored coconuts and trap floats) and a sail strung between trees providing shade. But don’t let the whimsical décor mislead you: the food is taken seriously. One taste of the blueberry pancakes, carrot and curry soup, miso-marinated eggplant salad, or bay scallops in Key lime beurre blanc and you’ll have no doubt ingredients and the gentle time it takes to prepare fine food are the priorities. The menu barely changes (not even the specials, except to offer seasonal stone crab claws), which means that Caribbean shrimp deglazed with Red Stripe, Jamaican jerk chicken or pan-sautéed yellowtail with citrus beurre blanc will be there for you next time, too --- even if the reserve selections on the notable wine list may change. Heavenly indeed, and home of quite possibly the best Key lime pie the island offers, with its mountains of baked meringue topping.
