Lunch with Chef Judi at Blu’ Island Bistro!

b2ap3_thumbnail_10270436_750972981603527_1271301902606550163_n.jpg
We went LIVE with Chef Judy and ABC News 7 Sarasota! What a great time! Read their take on Blu’ Island Bistro (Venice FL) below: "Just blocks from the beach on S. Tamiami Trail in Venice, this shabby chic beachy theme is quite unique. A Culinary Institute of America graduate, Chef Alan plays with his menu, like offerings such as Philly pork rolls and chicken parmesan burgers. Friday and Saturday nights, dinner is served -- and expect the unexpected, like elk and ostrich with white truffle oil. Chef Alan's mom makes the homemade desserts.” Posted in Chef judi, Local on Friday, April 25, 2014 11:32 am.

“Amazing Food in a Very Unique Atmosphere”

b2ap3_thumbnail_10072_556094981091329_2126527069_n.jpg
Valleri B from Venice Florida reviewed some of our popular dishes on TripAdvisor.I've had three meals here so far in the past week. I'm a pretty picky person when it comes to dining out. All three meals were amazing. I tried the BLT with fried egg that included fried green tomatoes on it. Interesting and delicious! My second meal was Eggs Benedict. I have this at most breakfast places I try and this was hands down the best version of the dish I've ever had. Yummy! Finally, I had the fish tacos for lunch. Coming from the San Diego area, I have to say I've had some great fish tacos but these were the best I've ever tasted. I can't wait to go again and keep trying more on the menu. I haven't tried the dinners yet, but they have some very interesting options. I grabbed a dinner menu on the way out. I've been trying to find a good restaurant in Venice since moving here 9 1/2 months ago. Sadly, most places were a disappointment. I have definitely found my favorite Venice restaurant. The prices are also very reasonable.Thanks Valleri B for taking the time to review all THREE of your meals in one week! We are excited you have found your favorite Venice restaurant. Chef Alan is dedicated to providing exiquite cuisine. Please let us know the next time you are visiting Blu’ Island Bistro Venice. We’d love to meet you! If you’ve been to Blu’ Island Bistro, you too can leave your review here.
