Adjusting to life dining out again after more than a year of picnics

As someone who has dedicated most of my adult life to working in the restaurant industry as a server, craft cocktail bartender, food blogger and culinary school student, it's hard for me to pick one favorite restaurant in San Diego, but Bleu Boheme in Kensington is the closest I can get to naming one.  While going to culinary school, I usually didn't have the money to go out for a nice meal unless it was during restaurant week, so I spent a lot of my evenings dreaming about the amazing food styles and dishes I was learning about without actually being able to try them myself. Bleu Boheme was one of the first nice restaurants I eventually went to when I could afford to go out to eat, in part because living close by in Normal Heights meant I could walk or bike there instead of taking a taxi when I didn't own a car.
