Chef Christie Tenaud heads up the Blue at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.
Boca Raton Resort & Club guests have a new spot to dine at, thanks to the Blue, a restaurant specializing in New American food and cocktails located on the 27th floor of the iconic pink hotel.

The Blue is a collaboration between Boston restaurateur Michela Larson and the resort and takes over the former Cielo space. The dining room, which accommodates 120 guests, features lapis blue walls and white leather banquettes, designed to match the colors of the Atlantic ocean.

Executive chef Christine Tenaud heads up the kitchen. Previously, Tenaud has worked with James Beard winner Melissa Kelly, who owns Primo in Rockland Maine. Most recently, Tenaud was chef de cuisine at Primo in the JW Marriott Star Pass in Arizona and sous chef at Essex House in New York City.
