Happy Birthday Blu Seafood & Bar!

Tonight, Blu Seafood & Bar had a party celebrating their 1st birthday! The restaurant was packed and they were giving away free hors d'oeuvres and had great drink specials. Above is a platter of smoked salmon and avocado crostini and tuna tartare on black sesame crackers, with wakame. They were so delicious and we ate way more of these than were on this plate.

We also had baked oysters that had little pieces of bacon and possibly grits.

These pieces of watermelon had a splash of balsamic vinaigrette and goat cheese. They were really good.
This was cuban pork on a slice of plaintain and was terrific.

They also have a completely new menu! I never dreamt that their fried oysters could get any better, but now they have parmesan fried oysters and you likely know how much I love parmesan. They were delicious, perfectly prepared and had an almost creamy consistency inside. They normally come with a tomato corn salad, but we requested that we substitute sweet potato fries for that, since my Most Faithful Reader can't eat tomatoes. The sweet potatoes were thin chips, were very good and normally accompany the NY Strip steak.

We each ordered a dessert and I, of course, had to have a slice of the key lime pie.

I am so glad that we decided to attend the party, because I had a great time. You can read a year's worth of Blu Blogging and look forward with me to many years of great dining at Blu.
