An Evening At Bleu Boheme: The Chef And His Cuisine, Ken Irvine
Updated: October 11, 2019 - 4:41 pm

There are plenty of restaurants in Coronado. And there are plenty of types – French, Italian, Thai, Mexican … the list goes on and on. And we can walk or ride a bike to them. Even though this is true, still we keep getting in the car and hopping across the bridge to Kensington to go to an absolute favorite – Bleu Boheme.

The draw is more than the fabulous homey French bistro food. It is the warm atmosphere, the neighborhood bistro feel and the fact that no matter how long we stay at the table, no one is trying to rush us out. As the lights flicker inside and the darkness descends outside, one feels enveloped in the warmth of conversation and happiness – just the sort that goes best with food.

In a bit of homage to another story of another storied chef that was recently published, one might put it this way. The tl;dr version of chef and owner, Ken Irvine’s life goes like this. He accidentally moved to Coronado but very intentionally opened Bleu Boheme.
