Bleu Restaurant & Lounge

 

Chef Driven:

One thing we pride ourselves with is a great staff.  We consider ourselves one big family.  We have seen many of our employees start when they were 15 and grow up in the restaurant.  We realize there is so much talent, passion and loyalty in our staff.  Over the years, JR has learned new things, has had new ideas, and new styles that he has wanted to experiment with.  Although, trying them on our customers at Chives Restaurant in Suamico was always ideal, it is difficult to change the menu when customers have grown to love certain signature items that we simply could not change. Bleu Restaurant and Lounge was an idea formed by JR Schoenfeld, and our son Nick Morse.

 

The Chef:

Adam Schierl returns to our restaurant family as Head Chef at Bleu in the spring of 2015.  In 2004, Adam worked for us in the kitchen at Chives as line cook.  Since then, Adam has been the sous chef at the Whistling Swan in 2005 and then was head chef from 2006- 2009.  He moved to Milwaukee in 2009 and work at the Hinterland Erie Street Gastropub where he was the sous chef for roughly 3 years. Adam moved back to Door County in 2012 where he was once again head chef at the Whistling Swan through March 2015.

 

The Design:

Wishing we could take credit for the beautiful interior design of Bleu, we owe Designs of the Interior on North Broadway in Green Bay all the credit.  The girls at Designs of the Interior met with JR several times and came up with the color, art, furniture and textures in our space.  Old doors puzzled together on the ceiling were a challenge.  JR spent all summer driving around the state of Wisconsin, sometimes knocking on doors of random farm houses asking to buy old doors.  He loved being a “picker” in between designing the open concept kitchen and coordinating the construction.  If you happen to fall in love with any piece of art or furniture inside Bleu, please call Designs of the Interior!
