Bar Review of Bleu Restaurant & Lounge in Ledgeview, WI
March 22, 2013
I ordered some fancy pants for myself, and they finally came in the mail the other day. And everyone knows when you get a new pair of fancy pants, you must go out to a fancy pants kinda place. So, that’s just what I did. I called up my fancy pants girlfriend, and asked her to meet me for drinks at Bleu Restaurant & Lounge. Bleu Restaurant is somewhat new, and is part of the Chives Restaurant family. While Chives conquers the Howard Suamico area, Bleu is stationed in the Ledgeview area.
As is said, Bleu Restaurant is located in the Ledgeview area, but it’s slightly off the road, and in an undisclosed area. Meaning, I passed by it SEVERAL times before I found it. I’m not really sure why there are no signs for the place; I’m thinking that they’ll put some up shortly. The exact location of Bleu is off Dickenson Road in that old Granary Building. After discovering their secret location, my girlfriend and I walked in and were greeted by a hostess. We asked if we could grab some drinks at the bar, and she said yes. She then quickly brought us over some menus. We had a beer menu, a wine menu, a cocktail menu, and then a food menu. The way Bleu is set up is very contemporary-rustic-chic-cozy-like. The tables are close together and in a straight-line lining the back wall. The bar part and the open kitchen are on the other side. There is also a large table for a bigger party and a small lounge couch area towards the front. We came on a Tuesday evening and the place was pretty crowded. The bar area is really cute, and it gives you a good view of the whole place, which is perfect for people watching. The only thing I thought was odd was that the bar stools were cemented to the floor. I’m used to snuggling up close to my friends instead of being put in my place.
After perusing the drink menus, I settled on their Mint Julep, and my girlfriend ordered a Blackberry Gin Cocktail. Both of these bad boys are Bleu’s own handcrafted concoctions. And they were delicious. Seriously, delicious. The Mint Julep consists of Jim Beam bourbon, house-made mint syrup, blackberry preserves, and love, while the Blackberry Gin consists of Broker’s gin, fresh basil, blackberries, house made sweet and sour, and some more love. Both these drinks cost $8 and are worth it. The bartender was very friendly, and chatted with us periodically. Even with the restaurant being crowded, he still made small talk with us, and didn’t rush us along.
We had a great time at Bleu Restaurant & Lounge. The drinks were awesome, as was the service. Those two things combined with a casual and warm atmosphere will definitely have us come back again.
Restaurant Review of Bleu in Ledgeview, WI

Bleu Restaurant and Lounge is located in Ledgeview, which borders on the East side of Bellevue and Green Bay. The new restaurant is situated in Olde School Square, set in a rustic country setting. As you walk in, you will notice that Bleu is an all open concept restaurant, including the kitchen part. This allows you to observe all the cooking. The décor of Bleu is done with rustic contemporary flair, and the vaulted ceiling is covered with a variety of antique door fronts.
I had dinner reservations for that evening, and when I arrived I was sat at a very small table that could fit two diners. The tables for customers with reservations are all lined all in a row and face the long bar and kitchen. There are many stools which face and run along the bar and kitchen for a more casual dining, and two large tables that seat ten for diners without reservations. The hostess gave me a cocktail menu and dinner menu. My waiter soon came and was very personable. He introduced himself and proceeded to tell me the specials for that evening. He also explained, in detail, the ingredients and the process in which they are made. I decided to start with the Lamb and Potato Soup for $5.00, and for my entrée I ordered the Butter Crumb Day Boat Haddock for $28.00. I was brought my cocktail, and a linen covered plate with slices of French bread and a side of herb butter. The bread tasted less than fresh and airy. My soup was served in a bowl which contained diced carrots, potatoes, pearl barley, tiny ground meatballs of lamb, and a few pieces of fresh mint. The soup had an intense flavor of the lamb, which gave a salty earthy flavor. I was not served or offered ice water and I also noticed that the other diners had not been brought any. I requested if I could have water and was served a glass of water without any ice. My haddock was served next and it looked delightfully exquisite. There was a large fillet covered with a beautiful golden crust resting and beside were two small oven roasted potatoes, one blue and one red. Under my fillet were al dente fresh vegetables consisting of a mixed medley of green beans, carrots, brussel sprouts, and roasted cauliflower. My haddock was spot on perfect, very moist, fresh, and flakey. The crusted bread crumb was melt in your mouth buttery with a slight crunch, it tasted divine. On the menu it stated fingerling potatoes, so I assumed they must have run out, but the oven roasted potatoes were delicious as were the crunchy textured vegetables. My service throughout my meal was very enjoyable; my server was attentive and pleasant to converse with. Bleu also serves lunches.
