Proprietors of The Blue Apron Restaurant, Sarah and Kenan, are proud to have established a popular Tullamore restaurant that creates fine cuisine in an intimate and relaxed setting.
Since their inception of July 2011, their popularity has secured, vested interests from across the globe, drawing strong favourable reviews.
The name ‘Blue Apron’, comes from the French – 'kitchen etiquette', whereby in France a new chef will receive a Blue Apron when they begin their training. Sarah and Kenan chose this name, as they believe that no matter successful a restaurant is, there is always room for improvement.
Sarah and Kenan are partners in life as well as in business, with Kenan as Head Chef and Sarah taking on Front of House. Owning and running a high quality restaurant has always been the long term goal for this couple, who together have three young children.
Kenan, who comes from a long line of chefs, started out his training when he was just fifteen. He worked his way across two continents, gaining experience in locations as diverse as the five star Hyatt in Istanbul and the Michelin starred restaurant l'Ecrivainin, in Dublin. Tullamore native Sarah Thomas is relishing her role working with her husband and together they feel they have all the ingredients to provide a special dining experience within Tullamore.
The menu in The Blue Apron Restaurant is varied with something to suit everyone's palate; from locally sourced meat, to fresh fish and a contemporary vegetarian menu inspired from Kenan’s Turkish roots. All dishes are diligently made from scratch within the restaurant’s kitchen, with a focus on seasonality and using quality ingredients. Produce is sourced locally as both Kenan and Sarah believe that it is vital for local businesses to support one another in an economy that presents many challenges.
Together with their staff, Kenan and Sarah invite you to enjoy a unique and pleasurable dining experience!
