Bleu Bohème is located at 4090 Adams, the former location of The Green Tomato, so the comparison is inevitable. The first thing I noticed is that the table captain is now an attractive and attentive young lady; an improvement. The second is that, whereas the Tomato's tables were square with comfortable upholstered chairs, now the tables are rectangular two-facing-twos with hard wooden chairs; not an improvement. And the third is that the Tomato's draperies have been eliminated, so there's more light, but also more noise.

My companions rated their wine, a Bordeaux Château Fonfroid, superb. My Yellow Tail beer tasted green, so I switched to a Karl Strauss, which was up to standard. Our koulibiac de saumon and boeuf bourguignon were smartly presented, except for the large chip out of my plate, and delicious. And the mousse and pyramid desserts, heavenly.

Our server was attentive and engaging throughout. Even the busboy showed a proprietary interest in ensuring our satisfaction.

I can't help wondering why the restaurant's name is Bleu Bohème instead of Bohème Bleue; shouldn't that adjective follow the noun and have the same gender? And why its customer-comment card asks for "vos recommendations" instead of "vos recommandations." Perhaps I'll ask the owner when I return, et je vais retourner.

 $190: 2 salads with 2 1in pieces of duck, dripping in dressing. 
 1 filet mignon, approx 3 1/2 in long, blackened, when it was requested med rare.
 1 lamb entree, which was good.
 1 shared dessert, a different one than was requested.

 We would have preferred to stay home, as we were sick, but the restaurant would have charged our credit card $100.
