K and I were invited to dinner by his brother and his fiancé. We were originally going to go to an Ethiopian place, but after a discussion we all weren’t really in the mood for something that new (none of us had ever eaten Ethiopian before). So we decided on a small place across the way, Blu. The place was cute and quiet. It was just what we were looking for. The food was very good, but they have extremely small portions. The service was amazing and our waitress was extremely attentive. It was a great experience, but most likely it will not be on my list of places to visit again due to the portion size.
Some of the dishes we tried:
Atlantic Salmon, Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Red Beets in an orange emulsion
Sea Scallops, Butternut Squash Puree, Sunchokes in an apple emulsion
Hanger Steak, Broccoli, Shiitake in a sesame sauce
* In one night was able to complete: #93. Try 5 new restaurants (5/5), #10. Try three new vegetables (2/3) – Brussel Sprouts & Beets and Things to eat before I die # 80. Brussels sprouts.
