Blue Windows Restaurant in Fort Myers

Anyone know of this restaurant? Good or bad?

      I read the writeup in the News Mess but really didn't think I'd be interested. He'll be open unless he has a catering job? Wine tastings with the Cork Dork? Website is a little cheesy to me but what do I know. I'm content with Bleu Provence right now. LMF

      1234 8th St S, Naples, FL 34102

        I love Blue Provence but its a bit of a drive from Fort Myers. I was a little hesitant too about the "I will be open if I am not catering somewhere" idea but the menu looked good. I also know a little too much about catering (like how much is truely not prepared to order or maybe a decent frozen product) so I wonder what is really served in the restaurant and is it "leftovers" from a recent event. Know what I mean?

          My dream is a lovely restaurant like the old Provence in New York that opens on Sanibel. There used to be an old classic french place there but it is long gone. Fusion seems to be the only way to go, which I am already tired of after 30 years. Fusion was interesting when it first appeared, but now, just any old flavors thrown together, Mexican-Indian-Vietnamese anyone? That Fusion place on College appears to be one of those. I'll pass.

          These idiot maps that show up when you mention a place are truly annoying. I wonder if they bill the places for the map and plug. If so, it truly needs to be made more accurate. New York Cafe in Jacksonville? ROFLMAO. LMF

            A reliable foodie visited Blue Window last week and found it pleasant so far, did not say "you have to go there", though.

            So, I'll go in the next month, IF there's a day that's agreeable to my guests AND the chef feels like cooking that night, AND the stars align with Mercury..
            The chef's attitude reminds me of how some boorish people date-they'll keep the date with you and show up IF they can't find anything better to do that night. Makes you feel warm and wanted, doesn't it?

            I'm giving Nirvana Fusion a little time, too, before I head up north. The price is ok, even if the menu doesn't have true fusion dishes. Who picks these restaurant names? Maybe the next reincarnation's name will be The White Hawk, or Lower East Side? .
            I'll not visit the Cape Coral Fusion spot-there's a few others on my Cape Coral list to try long before that, Like Brew Babies. Fusion/ Confusion is as attractive to me as yesterday's vertical food, faux foie gras, and foams.. I do so enjoy cooking at home, especially as the season comes on!
