The Blue Door is not just another restaurant. We took great thought & pride into building an environment our guests could feel comfortable in. We believe that all ones senses must feel the soul of the restaurant in order to truly capture our essence. Every room is thoughtfully unique, creating a different experience with every visit. Being both first-generation Greeks and having traveled there multiple times, we wanted to bring a little piece of it to San Jose.
Our design elements were influenced by one of our favorite resorts in southern Greece. Anyone who has traveled to Greece has been fortunate to see that, aside from food & hospitality being the essence of the culture, it is surrounded by a sea of blue which is also represented in it’s flag & the superstitious powers of the evil eye. When fishermen went out to sea to earn their living, their wives painted their doors blue to protect them from evil and bring their husbands home safely.
Today, many of the islands continue to paint the doors and windows blue and on some islands, it is law. For us, aside from its mystical qualities, The Blue Door represents the door to the Mediterranean as reflected in our menu. Whatever your beliefs may be, we want you to know that when you enter The Blue Door, you will not only be greeted by our hospitality, enjoy our kitchen, but will leave all your worries behind while you enjoy your dining experience.
Thank you for choosing to dine with us!
