Bleu's Build Your Own Pasta

Posted By on Wed, Nov 14, 2012 at 2:21 PM

Today, Hannah and I went to check out Bleu's new Build Your Own Pasta option, a noodle-centric version of the downtown restaurant's popular Build Your Own Sandwich lunch.

You start by choosing your protein, from clams and meatballs to grilled sausage that run from $8.99 to $10.99. Next, you select one of five sauces (marinara, alfredo, etc.) Then, it's on to the veggies (caramelized onions, tomatoes, and so on) and pasta (spaghetti, penne ...). You can also opt for add ons that range from sirloin to shrimp for an extra $3.99.

Hannah got shrimp ($10.99) with broccoli, mushrooms, and roasted red peppers with the pink vodka sauce and Pappardelle noodles. It made for a pretty plate.


As the proteins are all meat and I'm a vegetarian, the chef came out to discuss other options. (Very nice!) But I was fine with sticking with the veggies: tomatoes, spinach, and caramelized onions with marinara on top of Orcchiette. It couldn't have been better.


This is a smart addition to Bleu's menu and just in time for the cooler weather.
