Birthday Dinner at Bleu Boheme
I took the day off for my birthday to join Toni for dinner in San Diego. She was attending an AVID conference and staying in a hotel that week. So, I drove down to pick her up. I found a very neat French restaurant named Bleu Boheme on TripAdvisor.com. Bleu Boheme is a quaint restaurant in the Kensington district of San Diego with an inviting rustic French charm.
We started our meal with bread, butter and their imported French cheese board. The bread was perfect with a crispy crust and a a soft center. Toni and I loved the cheese board. It had a wonderful selection of French cheeses, dried fig terrine and a deliciously flavored thick and sweeet honey. Although everything was scrumptious, the cheeses and bread were definitely the hightlight of the meal for me. I paired the cheese with an effervescent glass of Grand Imperial Champagne.
For our entrees, Toni chose the Northern Halibut with Loster Sauce over Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus and I chose the Filet Mignon with Three Sauces served with Sauteed Green Beans and French Fries. The Halibut was cooked perfectly and the Filet Mignon was yummy dipped in the Curry, Green Peppercorn and Port Truffle sauces. I liked all three sauces, but the Port Truffle was my favorite.
We finished our meal by sharing the Warm Flourless Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Sorbet. It was a perfect ending to a wonderful birthday dinner!
While we were dining, I overheard the couple next to us comment on the Blue Cheese Olives in their Martinis. Since Toni loves Blue Cheese and Green Olives, I asked our waitress to bring us some so she could give them a try. She loved them. :)
