Bleu Bohème will satisfy French cravings with a three-course meal and a special cocktail during San Diego Restaurant Week from Sunday, Jan. 15, through Sunday, Jan. 22.

Owner and executive chef, Ken Irvine, has created a prix fixe dinner priced at $40 per person, with additional items available for a supplemental charge. In honor of the 100th anniversaries of Girl Scouting in San Diego and Girl Scout Cookies, a featured appetizer dish has been created with Terfoils, the popular shortbread cookie. A specialty cocktail will also be available for the celebration, priced at $12.

Bleu Bohème’s three-course dinner will begin with a choice of one ‘les hors d’oeuvres,’ including: cassoulet d’escargots with snails, chicken oysters, mushrooms, fennel, leeks and shallots with Dijon mustard cream; la charcuterie served with prosciutto, garlic sausage, Rosette de Lyon, Copa sausage, Spanish chorizo, croûton, house pickled vegetables and olives; moules à la crème d’Ail, black Mediterranean mussels with roasted garlic cream, shallots and white wine; and more. For an additional $4 charge, guests may also select the Girl Scouts-inspired dish: foie gras au torchon made with persimmon jam, Trefoil crumble and arugula; crèpe au homard, a lobster crepe with mascarpone, asparagus and white truffle-carrot sauce; or steak tartare, house-smoked New York steak with cornichons, grainy mustard, capers, shallots and Kennebec potato chips.

Dessert options include mousse au chocolat: a rich dark homemade Callebaut chocolate mousse with seasonal red berries; crème brulée: rich vanilla custard with a crunchy sugar crust; gâteau aux trois fromages: mascarpone, cheve goat and cream cheese cake with almond crust port wine-pear sauce; pain d’épice: warm gingerbread with strawberry confiture and caramel ice cream; or brioche aux abricot: brioche bread pudding with dried apricots and raisins.
