Bleu Restaurant Wine Bar  is  celebrating its fifth year anniversary of  serving imaginative, always- fresh cuisine and superlative cocktails and craft beers in it’s comfortable restaurant in  downtown Columbia, Missouri. 

On the whole the food is truly terrific here in this walkable little town. They boast really good pizzas, and vegetarian options too. Where, Columbia ? Yes, Columbia. The little core of the city is home to great restaurants in part due to the concentration of healthcare and universities nearby and the cost of living and doing business is relatively reasonable so creative chefs flock here. In spring, summer and early fall, the open farmer’s market is a delight to wander and talk to produce and flower growers, soap makers, bee keepers, artisan bakers and vendors. You could literally create breakfast or a picnic lunch from the offerings. Back to Bleu, in celebration of this local culinary star, I am dusting off an old favorite the “Port Cosmo.” With its ruby color and cranberry juice, a perfect signature drink for your holiday parties.
