Bleu Boheme’s Frenchified take on the all-American classic is anything but conventional. The Croque de Garçon stars Angus beef that’s ground in-house and served open-faced on a slice of buttered, toasted brioche, adorned with Brie, slices of house-smoked bacon, melt-in-your-mouth slow-cooked onions, and a runny fried egg. Crispy, herbs de Provence flecked pommes frites are the perfect side dish. Over thirty wines are available au pichet (quarter- or half-liter) to wash it down.
How to order: Reservations are recommended but walk-ins are accepted if seating is available.
Joyeux Action de Grâces! Kensington’s favorite French bistro will serve a three-course prix fixe menu and a special pumpkin cocktail for Thanksgiving Day. Starters include pumpkin hominy soup with crispy parsnips and chive crème fraiche, duck pâté and pork terrine, pickled vegetables, olives and Dijon mustard, and more, while entrees feature Diestel Family Ranch turkey prepared two ways—breast roasted with herbs or legs and thighs prepared confit-style, served with fresh root vegetables, pommes puree, savory wild mushroom bread pudding, and white wine gravy. Your choice of four decadent desserts, including warm brioche bread pudding with caramelized apples, raisins, and white chocolate, conclude the meal. View the full menu online.
