Blu Blogging : Potential Controlled Substance

Have you had the mac and cheese side dish at Blu Seafood and Bar? If you had, you would remember, because you would have already ordered it more than once. It should be a controlled substance. It's way more than habit forming. It's macaroni and lump crab meat with prosciutto and truffle cream. I had some on Wednesday night and by Friday afternoon, I'd already decided that I needed to make reservations for that evening. It's that good. I recommend sharing with someone and ordering an entree or small plate as well, because it's very rich. I keep thinking how good it would be with Chef Tim Lyons's watermelon, goat cheese and tomato salad, but I'll have to wait until summer for that combination.

They were having a German Wine dinner last Wednesday and Tim made a melt-in-your-mouth apple strudel for the occasion.

I had the opportunity to go out to lunch at Blu last Monday. Yes, that is three times in one week, if you're counting at home. I had a wonderful fried oyster caesar salad with lots of fresh oysters and plenty of parmesan. It was really good.

    The mac & cheese next door at Vin Rouge is also really good.

  2. Yes, Vin Rouge's is really good, but I actually don't think it's nearly as good as Blu's. At Vin Rouge, it's also packaged as an entree, rather than a side item. I just can't eat something like that as an entree without feeling sick afterward.

  4. Yes! :) They have crab specials on Thursdays.
