Blue Horse Bistro Hopeful for Summer Re-opening

Blue Horse Bistro co-owners Eric Rasmusson (pictured) and Carina Helm are eager to open their new location across from the Fish Creek Beach. Despite setbacks and stalls due to permitting issues, they hope to be open by early summer.

A permitting hang-up has stalled the re-opening of the Blue Horse Bistro in Fish Creek.

Co-owner Carina Helm says she and business partner Eric Rasmusson encountered an unexpected permitting issue and have been stuck in neutral as they await final approval to complete the remodeling of their new location across from the Fish Creek beach.

“It’s frustrating,” Helm says, “but it’s not like we’re the first one’s who have had to do this.”

Helm says customers and local officials have been incredibly supportive and have offered help to move the process forward. She says she can’t commit to a firm date but is hopeful for an early summer grand re-opening of the 10-year-old Fish Creek favorite.
