Despite the nonchalance of its name, meals at the Blasé Café & Martini Bar are anything but expected. The casual retreat serves up seafood favorites with uniquely flavorful touches, from towers of crab cakes with up-to-date permits to New Orleans-style salmon and shrimp in a spicy marinara sauce. Land-sourced selections go beyond the average burger with unique proteins such as roast duckling, racks of New Zealand lamb, and flame-grilled filet mignon.
Of course, no self-respecting martini bar would be complete without a bar menu full of martinis. Mixing specialists shake up their signature drinks in three styles: traditional, sweet and sour, and dessert. Options such as the Ruby Red martini—a blend of Ruby Red vodka, Ruby Red schnapps, grapefruit juice, and a splash of pomegranate—and the decadent graham cracker-rimmed Key Lime martini provide empty hands with the ideal toasting and sipping accessory.
