Pass and Provisions to Become Bludorn

A website has launched for Bludorn, the newly named restaurant that chef Aaron Bludorn is opening in the Fourth Ward. 

Although the website only says Bludorn will be "coming soon" and open nightly, a link to the restaurant's page on CulinaryAgents.com provides a few more details. 

The upscale-casual restaurant is expected to have somewhere between 26 and 50 employees, per the Culinary Agents page. So far, Cherif Mbodji has been hired as general manager. Since graduating from Western Michigan University in 2004, Mbodji has worked at various restaurants in New York, according to his Culinary Agents page. Since 2013, he was service director and then general manager at Café Boulud, the acclaimed restaurant where Aaron Bludorn worked from 2009 until May 2019. 

When Aaron Bludorn announced his departure from Café Boulud, he said he would move to Houston to open a new restaurant. News broke in January that the new restaurant will be in the former Pass & Provisions space at 807 Taft St. near Allen Parkway.

Previous reports said Aaron Bludorn would open "a modern French-American restaurant in a polished and charismatic setting" in Houston, but the description on the Culinary Agents page describes Bludorn slightly differently:

At Bludorn, diners will feel Aaron’s fine dining sensibility, but will experience a timeless neighborhood restaurant. The food will be familial but thoughtful, the hospitality warm yet polished, and the scene vibrant, spirited, a fit for any occasion. The chef will embrace the restaurant’s close proximity to seafood from the Gulf, meat from Texas ranches, incredible produce being grown by local farmers, and ingredients from around the world in a hat tip to 807 Taft’s first life as a global import outpost for the city of Houston.
