6 Things to Know About Bludorn’s Anticipated Houston Seafood Restaurant Navy Blue


On November 18, James Beard Award-nominated chef Aaron Bludorn and his crew plan to debut Navy Blue, a seafood restaurant in Rice Village.

The restaurant has already made its menu available in advance of opening, and starting on Friday, November 11, reservations are being taken.

The restaurant will be run by a New York chef even though Bludorn, his wife Victoria Pappas Bludorn, and business partner Cherif Mbodji continue to oversee it.

The biggest draw is the seafood. The Bludorn restaurant's oysters were served raw, fried, and baked, and Navy Blue will emulate this by presenting its clams, shrimp, and Dover Sole in a variety of ways.

Drinks will be available. A wine list by sommelier Molly Austad includes over 160 bottles of sparkling, white, and red wines from France and other countries.

The restaurant name has meaning. The restaurant's navy blue decor, from its sandy concrete-blocked oyster-shaped wall near the entrance to its pearl-shaped hostess stand, reflects its seafood and ocean motif.

What to wear? Navy Blue will be like Bludorn—casual. At the earliest idea and once Navy Blue launched, we wanted guests to be able to enjoy the restaurant without having to dress up or follow fine dining standards.

You can make a reservation right now. You can reserve a table on Resy as early as noon on Friday, November 11 if you want to guarantee first choice.
