When people ask Barbara Bloomgren her specialty, she responds: “Instructing people how to take seemingly complex recipes and prepare them easily while having fun”.
After raising five children and cooking over 10,000 family meals, Barbara decided to leave her sales and marketing career to pursue her passion to enhance family life by teaching the art of nurturing with home cooked meals. While formally studying Culinary Arts she was able to further her education at The Culinary Institute of Canada, studying International and Canadian Cuisine. Six months later she traveled to Bad Gliekensberg, Austria to study Austrian Pastry and Specialties. She is an Active member of the American Culinary Federation and a Chef Instructor for Food Matters. Several restaurant assignments rounded out her educational and practical experiences.

This Bridgton, Maine eatery is the latest from longtime restaurateurs Joanie Wilson and her husband Jimmy Burke, whose first restaurant, Allegro, established a new gold standard in and around Boston when he opened it in 1981. Together, Joanie and Jimmy have opened Riva and JW’s Burger Bar in Scituate and Orta in Pembroke, which were sold and continue to have great success, fueled by the inspiration provided by Joanie and Jimmy. And now, Vivo, in Bridgton, Maine, where Joanie and Jimmy determined years ago buy a house, establish themselves in the Bridgton community, and to finalize their restaurant careers with Vivo, the culmination of their nearly four decades of experience in the restaurant business. Joanie and Jimmy have understood from the beginning, that if you use fresh, excellent quality ingredients of traditional Italian dishes, which dictate ‘the fewer the better’, the more clearly and enjoyably the few ingredients will express themselves and the heritage and delight of Italian cuisine.
