Chef & Owner Brooke Kinsey
A love of food led me to pursue a degree in culinary arts. I learned comfort food from an early age. Pan fried steak from my grandmother fueled me to produce beef tenderloin with fig and bleu cheese preserves. Mashed potatoes gave way to fingerlings with crème fraiche and caviar. At Bleu & Fig, we create Modern American comfort food. The idea of food without love doesn’t make sense to us.
I was blessed to pursue my passion of food at Johnson and Wales University in Virginia and work led me to fabulous places like Long Boat Key, FL and Duck, North Carolina before eventually settling in Columbus, Ohio.
Bleu & Fig has been serving the Columbus area for over a decade now. In 2015, we opened our private event space located at the corner of Garden & High in Clintonville where we have hosted and catered hundreds of lovely events, showers, parties, rehearsal dinners, weddings, and our popular Brunch, Brunch Baby pop-ups.
In 2020, we expanded by offering online ordering for curbside catering to go.
In early 2023, we were awarded a contract to run the cafeteria inside of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) building and we have temporarily moved our curbside catering to go pickup location there. We are hoping to offer catering order pickup and grab n' go offerings at our Clintonville location in the future!
At Bleu & Fig, we believe every event, every bite of food, and every interaction with our staff should be exceptionally special.
We truly look forward to serving you.
